Aurivo Co-op is introduced a new protocol in relation to the collection of milk from farms during the Covid-19 emergency.
It focuses on minimising person-to-person contact.
If any farmer, farm staff or members of their family are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, they should follow the HSE guidelines and also inform their Milk Advisor, Branch Manager or Farm Commercial Specialist.
Measures will be implemented to continue collecting milk from your farm.
Farmers are asked to ensure that all surfaces the lorry driver will touch are regularly disinfected before the milk is due to be collected, and handwashing facilities should be provided for milk haulers.
Samples that need to be sent to the lab should be left for the milk hauler to collect.
To minimise person-to-person contact, farmers are asked not to approach the milk hauler during milk collection.
