Goat Testing

Dairy One currently tests a number of goat circles throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. In addition to a testing program, we also offer an annual certification program and annual scale certification. Please contact us for more information.

If a goat herd tests with a Dairy One Technician, regular Dairy One s service charges  apply.

 

Owner Sampled goat herd fees
$22.00 base fee  (1-20 goats), $1.00 for each additional goat.
$17.00 base fee (1-20 goats), $1.00 for each additional goat for members involved in a circle of 4 or more herds. A bookkeeping charge of $8.00 will be added if payment for the test is not sent in with the samples for each test.

Base fee includes component sample analysis (fat, protein, and somatic cell), computer services, all reports processing, postage and handling.

Startup Charge – (One time only, new accounts)
$22.00 includes one shipper, two icepacks, a sample dipper, sample bottles and preservative.

Shipping charge
(Per test)
$12.00* for the return of shippers and supplies to the dairy. The customer will be responsible for shipping charges incurred for getting the samples to Dairy One, estimated to be $10-12.  Dairy One encourages multiple herds per shipper  to reduce the cost of shipping.

No UPS charges will be incurred for those herds shipping to and from established Dairy One technician “pickup points”.

* Dairy One reserves the right to adjust the UPS charge for return shipping.

Annual Technician Certification Charge

$20 includes Technician manual, test, and certification.

Annual Scale Certification
