- Journal of dairy science 87:3099-3104 A Review of International Standards and the Scientific Literature on Farm Milk Bulk-Tank Sampling Protocols (april 2004)

Extract : Another incentive for reexamining the current protocol was economic: the DFO, which represents 6000 dairy farmers (DFO, 2002), estimates that reducing agitation time from 5 to 2 min would save about US $1.2 million per year in Ontario due to more efficient use of both trucks and truck drivers (D. Nolan, Transportation Manager, DFO, personal communication, 2002).

Same thinking applies for Charriau's quick connection clamp !

- From Australia : milk vats present a falling risk that is unique to dairy farms.
