All about Mastitis I Milk Quality

Quality Premium in Quebec

This premium will be $0.50/hl and will be financed out of revenues from milk sales, as is currently done for the solids-non-fat premium. To qualify, producers must achieve the following results:

  Monthly Results
  Total Bacteria
(TB/ml)

Somatic Cells
(SC/ml)

Year 1 40,000 300,000
Year 2 30,000 250,000
Year 3 and subsequent years 20,000 200,000

 
This premium, which requires an amendment to the payment regulation, should be implemented in early 2010. Producers will be informed when the payment begins.
