Is Your Dairy at Risk?
Many dairy producers are unknowingly at risk for a residue violation in both meat or milk shipped from their farm. If any of these sound familiar, you may want to consider having a residue risk assessment.
What Happens If My Dairy Has A Residue Violation?
The consequences of having a drug residue violation in either milk or meat are severe and long lasting.
If your dairy has a repeat drug residue violation in meat or milk your dairy will be part of the national database of residue offenders. That list is available to anyone on the web and can be used negatively by the media.
Inspection & Investigation:
The FDA may initiate an investigation after a residue violation and you are more likely to be under continuous monitoring.
If your dairy has a milk drug residue violation, you will be financially responsible for the tanker load of milk.
If you have a repeat meat violation, your dairy will go on a ban list to sales barns.
Avoiding drug residues is important for consumer confidence. We have a responsibility to produce and provide a safe, wholesome product with no residues.
