Lactanet and Alberta Milk are pleased to celebrate the opening of the Lactanet central milk testing lab located in the Alberta Milk building. This transition will enhance collaboration and add greater value to the dairy industry through a mutual dedication to serving Alberta dairy farmers.
“We are thrilled to have the Lactanet team now processing milk quality samples in their new space,” says Freda Molenkamp-Oudman, general manager of Alberta Milk. “Having Lactanet in close proximity to the Alberta Milk office will support enhanced communication and also offer enhanced flexibility in the services that the lab may be able to provide in the future.”
In addition to providing milk quality, payment, and DHI analysis services, the new lab is also equipped to provide calibration and reference sample services for the dairy processing industry.
“This is a state of the art, ISO accredited facility” says Lactanet CEO Neil Petreny says. “We’re excited to be part of the long-term success of the dairy industry.”
“Milk quality is a top priority for the Alberta Milk Board, so this relationship is one that makes sense for Alberta,” says Alberta Milk Chair Stuart Boeve. “I look forward to exploring the growth of this relationship and identifying how we can both better serve our producers.”
The lab will continue to be a completely independent, fully certified facility. The workspace is located at 1303 91 St SW in Edmonton, Alberta.
