Testing Milk is Important

There are various tests for different things.  Each one tells us something else about the quality of the milk, and what is in it.

Dairy Herd Improvement Test (DHI)

We at Northern Dawn have tested our dairy goats on the DHI milk test program for many years. Typically this test is meant for herd management and to let potential buyers know if the animal they are thinking of purchasing is a viable dairy goat.  However, for milk test quality, there are some good aspects of the DHI test, to help us know of the quality of the milk.
