Coronavirus Statement

In light of the updated Government Guidance and recent lockdown, it is important that The Cattle Information Service (CIS) continues to protect the health of our employees, contract milk recorders, our customers and consumers.  As a result, our preferred option once again is to offer a DIY milk recording service although we do understand that this may provide difficulties for some farms.  If the milk recorder and farmer are satisfied that they can meet the required conditions below, assisted milk recordings can go ahead.‚Äč

  • No one on farm is experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms in the last 10 days (to include fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, temperature and/or a loss or change in your sense of smell or taste)
  • No one on farm has had close contact with or cared for someone diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 10 days
  • No one on farm is currently diagnosed with COVID -19
  • Customer and milk recorder give mutual consent to carry out an on farm milk recording.
  • All milk recording equipment will be disinfected before going onto and leaving farm.
  • Milk Recorders will ensure all biosecurity measures are carried out.
  • Hot water and washing facilities are available for milk recorders to wash hands, and wellingtons.
  • Social distancing requirements are adhered to.
  • Time spent on farm and face to face interaction is kept to a minimum.

If you have a visit arranged and somebody on farm is displaying COVID symptoms, awaiting test results, is self-isolating or has tested positive, please notify us prior to the visit so that alternative arrangements can be made.

CIS milk recording and health testing is an essential service to support food production and the health of not only consumers but herds, with services such as PregCheck minimising on farm visits.  Our laboratory and transport system for milk samples will continue to operate unless government advice changes or we have a reason to shut the premises due to illness. Whilst we are able to continue analysing samples and processing results, we understand there may be disruption in the postal system, so we would recommend that farmers review their results online.

Your local Area Manager will contact you prior to your next milk recording date to ascertain your milk recording requirements during this difficult time.

In the meantime, if you have any queries please call 01923 695319 or email info@thecis.co.uk

Wishing you, your family and staff continued good health.
