 Quality control

At present the Laboratory carries out systematically the following analyses in order to control the quality of the raw milk in origin:

PHYSICAL-CHEMICAL ANALYSIS : the following parameters are analyzed:

•  Fat, protein, lactose and dry meager extract (equipment used: Milkoscan)
• Determination of the freezing point of the milk : parameter indicating the possible addition of water to the milk (equipment used: Crioscopi)

MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYSES : the following parameters are analyzed:

• Number of aerobic mesophyl bacteria at 30ºC (equipment used: Bactosan)
• Number of somatic cells (equipment used: Fossomatic)
• Residues of growth inhibitors (antibiotics) : positive/negative.

(Therefore we carry the ECLIPSE 100 test out).

 Analysis cow to cow

We also do the analyses of individual controls or analysis cow to cow, since it has been proven to be a very effective tool to prevent or correct the pollution with somatic cells and for the genetic improvement of the cattle.

 Mastitis

Controlling the mastitis control in tanks reveals the dominant pathogenic microorganisms as well as the type of mastitis: whether environmental or contagious.

The analysis of the individual mastitis permits the identification of the microorganisms causing the mastitis. The further determination by means of an antibiogramm helps to find out the most effective antibiotic.

 Drinking water control

The main objective of water analysis is to avoid possible pollution and infections on the farm. Most important are clean milking installations, cooling tank and drinking water in the animal watering places.

 Urea analysis

The urea level in milk gives us an idea whether the food given to the cow is correct and well balanced. A lack of balance can lead to high food expenses, decreasing rates of fertility (15% to 20%) (due to excess of urea in the uterus) and a decrease of the immunological system of the animal together with a decrease of milk production.

 Analysis of elaborated products

For the fulfillment of the different food regulations, the laboratory carries out analyses of all microbiological and chemical parameters required, especially in dairy products.

By guaranteeing absolute impartiality, independence and integrity of the tests carried out we have achieved the ENAC accreditation.
