Date, time, temperature, producer’s identification, route number
Dipstick reading, producer’s number and temperature
Producers number, temperature and date
Producers number, date, time, temperature, and hauler’s identification
Temperature, producer’s number, and hauler’s identification
How should the temperature control or pilot sample be correctly labeled?
“Temperature control”; “TC”; or “pilot”
Name of farm and “TC”
“Check temperature using this sample”
Producer number, hauler ID, date, time, temperature and “TC”
Which sampling plan provides for one sample that can be used for all laboratory analysis?
Bulk tank sampling plan
Sanitary sampling plan
Once a month sampling plan
Universal sampling plan
What is the temperature control or pilot sample used for?
Provide extra milk for testing
Check for antibiotics in the milk
Check the temperature of the milk samples at any time
Determine added water content
Why should all sample containers be filled not to exceed ¾ their capacity?
Obtain enough milk for testing purposes.
Leave room to agitate the sample before lab testing.
To keep them from spilling
All of the above
Milk samples are required to be kept at what temperature?
0° F to 45° F
Less than 50° F
Just above freezing
Between 32° F and 40° F
At least 40° F
Stored milk samples do not need to be protected against contamination.
Tanker agitation can be done by which one of the following methods?
There is no need for agitation on direct loads
Filtered air supply through the tank washline
Stirring the milk with a dipper
Driving the truck around
All of the Above
Milk sampling and temperture check of the load should be done when:
While the tank is being filled
When the tank is done filling and properly agitated
Taken out of the milk line inside the milk room before being pumped onto the truck
To determine the quantity of milk in a tanker truck, the tanker must either be weighed on a certified scale and/or the weight must be determined by using a calibrated milk flow meter.
It is very important that air supplies for agitation purposes be properly filtered at the point of use with a disposable filter media?
A wash tag is to be filled out every time a tanker is cleaned and sanitized but does not need to remain with the milk tanker?
Who is responsibility is it to make sure that all direct load tankers have been properly agitated prior to sampling the milk?
It is permissible to completely open the manhole lid on top of the milk tanker when loading milk to ensure proper ventilation?
