This NebGuide presents a mastitis treatment record keeping system that will help to reduce the chances of having adulterated milk enter the milk tank.

Starting July 1, 1993, the national Milk and Dairy Beef Quality Assurance Program will become effective. This program is a direct result of media attention concerning milk quality. It also reflects a growing consumer concern with drug residues in the nation's food supply chain. The American Veterinary Medical Association and National Milk Producers Federation responded to these concerns by developing a ten-point Milk and Dairy Beef Residue Prevention Protocol.
