Incentives and Free Testing
Herd testing

All licensed dairy herds in Atlantic Canada are eligible for FREE environmental cultures (EC) of the dairy cow facility. See program page for details. Samples will be collected by project personnel. A form to request testing is available by following the link. The value of the FREE EC is $240 per farm plus collection costs.

Risk Assessment

All herds conducting environmental culture are required to do a risk assessment with a new Self-Assessment (either on paper or online). A Management Plan can be developed from this risk assessment by the farmer and their program certified veterinarian, and the program funds up to $50 in veterinary fees for this activity. See program page for details.

Cow Testing

Cow testing will be available for herds through their veterinarian for a fee. Test methods are approved by the AJDI Scientific Committee. Test results will be held in confidence and provided only to program certified veterinarian identified by the herd owner for interpretation and communication to the producer.
