Dairy One Forage Lab Services
730 Warren Road, Ithaca NY 14850
Effective October 1, 2016, new pricing and forage analysis services were introduced. All pricing (USD) is per sample. Pricing is subject to change without notice.
Over the last few years, outbreaks of BSE and Foot & Mouth disease has caused the United States to review its policies regarding the importation of international agricultural products. Samples are subject to closer inspection and many are rejected to minimize the risk of importing disease. As a result, our handling and disposal costs have increased.
There are two price schedules – one for American and Canadian samples and a second one for all other samples of international origin. The international prices are greater than the domestic prices to help cover the increased cost of doing business internationally.
We have appreciated your support in the past and look forward to continuing our relationship in the future. Thanks for your continued patronage.
