Home/Atlantic dairy industry

A word from Jeff Gunn, Atlantic Regional Manager

During these unprecedented and trying times, we at Lactanet continue to make the health and safety of our employees and farmers our top priority. We also recognize that even with the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions that come with it, our dairy farmers continue to go to work everyday, producing a quality product, and needing to manage their herd performance and profitability. We also recognize that many of you still want data to do this.  We want to make sure we are here for you, in any way we can be. This is why we have moved to a non-contact service. This means any on-farm testing will be unsupervised (owner-sampler), which would involve the samples being taken by the farmer or their team, and the samples/data being picked up at the farm by the technician or a courier. Any advisory services will be offered remotely for the unforeseeable future. We all need to play our part to beat COVID-19 and get this behind us as soon as is reasonably possible. If we can be of any assistance during this time, do not hesitate to reach out to us. 

Take care and stay safe everyone.
