In collaboration with the FPLQ (Milk Marketing Board), Valacta offers urea analysis on the bulk tank samples used for milk payment analysis. By providing access to the results on a weekly basis, this service allows the producer to follow the evolution of their urea values over time more closely, and to more rapidly detect changes in the use of feed protein.

 

 
Of course, bulk tank urea only provides an average with no information about the distribution and consistency of individual results, aspects which are just as important as the average. This tool is therefore one which is best used to complement the individual cow MUN.

 

Bulk Tank Urea, do we need this analysis?
