Milk Transport Security Project

What are the benefits of the Milk Program to Kentucky’s dairy industry?
  • Help to ensure that milk haulers are making accurate measurements and conversions for the volume of milk in producer tanks and that they obtain a representative “universal sample” to be submitted for payment purposes.

  • Monitor the handling of producer samples from the hauler to the laboratory and ensure samples used for payment purposes are handled properly and analyzed within 72 hours.

  • Monitor laboratories that analyze producer samples for payment purposes. Laboratories are routinely evaluated to ensure they are following proper lab procedures and are utilizing accurately calibrated equipment.

  • Review pay records from weight tickets, to lab records, and final pay stubs to ensure Kentucky producers are paid accurately and to ensure that processors are billed accurately.
