What do I do if I suspect that my milk may contain antibiotics?

You need to determine what drugs may have been used on your farm.  Once you know this you can contact a processor in your area to find out if they will test your milk for a fee.  If you are located in an outlying area try contacting a neighbor, some producers have their own test kits or your veterinarian.

If you cannot get your milk tested and you suspect that there may be antibiotics in the tank we recommend that you dump your milk as there are penalties involved if your milk gets rejected at the processor.

Note:  There are simple tests that can be purchased for farm use, contact Kelly and she will send you the information on this.  The cost of each test is much less expensive than penalties involved in shipping milk containing antibiotics.
