The Indiana Creamery License Division will celebrate 100 years of service to the Indiana Dairy Industry next year.
Our mission is to ensure fairness and accuracy in the weighing, sampling and testing of milk and cream purchased in Indiana through the implementation of inspection and educational programs.
Basically, if you are an Indiana Dairy farmer and you think you are not being paid accurately for your milk, be that because of poor sampling or record keeping by your milk sampler, or other individual, a processor that isn't paying you promptly, or you just want to double check the BF and protein results your lab is sending you, we can help.
Over the past year we have helped farmers with processors who were 3-6 months behind in paying their producers, double checked BF and Protein scores for 2 different farms and compared the results to their cooperative's lab results.
We have performed 100's of load audits of milk samplers of Indiana dairy farms to take a proactive approached to monitoring milk sampler performance, held milk sampler training courses and conducted an intensive investigation to a report of illegitimate records and milk that was not accounted for.
