Milk on the move
Moving milk from the farm to the dairy is one of the major responsibilities of Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO). Transporting milk is very much a co-operative effort between DFO and the independent milk transport companies that haul milk from farm to processor.
Every two days, for most producers, an insulated tank truck will arrive at the farm. Once the milk is checked by a certified bulk milk tank grader for temperature, odour and appearance, it’s taken to a processing plant.
