ULC operates under its own authority as an independent, nongovernmental organization. ULC is financially funded by the fees it charges manufacturers of the products submitted for certification.
If not suitable for human consumption, recovery cheese must be disposed of as an animal by-product. See the guide on dealing with animal by-products. Milking operations To produce safe raw milk, dairy farmers should maintain strict cleanliness, check milk and animals regularly and prevent contamination.
As far as possible, you should follow basic principles of general cleanliness, as set out in EU regulations. Such cleaning will also reduce the amount of bacteria present.
Avoid dry wiping as this does not remove many bacteria.
After thoroughly washing and drying the teats, you should wipe them with disinfectant-impregnated towels or treat with an approved pre-dip solution. This must be effectively removed before cluster attachment - eg by drying with paper towel.
Do not move dusty feeds or bedding materials close to the milking area immediately before or during milking. This is because large volumes of air are drawn into milking equipment during cluster attachment and removal, through air bleeds and during milk transfer.
Keep bungs and covers in place at all times and during milking. There should also be a closure around the delivery pipe into the milk tank.
You should ensure milk contact surfaces are made of food-grade materials and kept clean and well maintained. You should protect milk from contamination during transfer and storage, and cool it quickly to minimise bacterial multiplication.
Site and structure of milking area Your milking area should be sited and constructed to ensure satisfactory hygienic conditions during milking. The area and immediate surroundings must be kept clean and you should have an adequate supply of clean water in the area for cleaning. Before milking animals in a cowshed, you should make sure the floor under the cows, dung channels and operator walkways are clean.
You should manage these areas during milking to reduce the risk of contamination. Never store milking units in a cow shed.
Milk storage area A milk storage room is considered a food storage area. As such, it should be used only to cool and store milk, and for the cleaning and storage of milking equipment.
The room should be clean at all times and must be sited in a clean area, away from obvious sources of contamination. It is good practice to have separate milk storage rooms and wash up areas.
Outdoor milk storage tanks must be: Access to milk storage areas Access to a milk storage area should be hard standing - eg concrete - and large enough for: If possible, you should ensure there is no direct access to parlours, motor rooms and offices.
Automatic milking systems If you use an automatic milking system AMSthe milking area should be closed off as much as possible.
You may need to use positive pressure ventilation to force air away from the milking area. The floors immediately below and surrounding the machinery should slope away from the milking area. You should not store any dung or slurry nearby. Operator hygiene considerations for dairy production Milk production staff must be trained in food hygiene, health risks and use of equipment.
They must have clean hands and forearms before and during milking and milk handling. Any exposed skin wounds should be hygienically covered using the first aid kit, which should be available in the area. Operators must also wear clean outer clothing.
The use of latex, or equivalent, gloves is recommended. Veterinary supervision of dairy farms You should clearly identify any animal that has been treated with a veterinary product.Cargo tank design includes calculations using the thickness of the tank shell and heads to determine if the tank would meet the minimum structural design requirements less any corrosion allowance.
These calculations include a safety factor of 4 that must be maintained throughout the life of the tank. Matrix Requirements offers solutions for medical devices companies.
