Milk Reception

Milk Reception is that step in the trade with milk where the responsibility for the raw milk goes from the milk producer to the Dairy.

The registration of delivered milk and samples for quality control takes place here.

At least once a week, samples of raw milk should be taken to a laboratory test and checked for the following.

  • Somatic cell count.
  • Bacteria count.
  • Protein and Fat content.
  • Freezing point

After accepting the raw milk, it must be cooled below +4° C.  If the milk is kept below this temperature, there is practically no deterioration of the bacteriological condition of the milk.

After cooling raw milk are can be kept in a Silo tank, or if the quantity is limited to a Farm Cooling tank
