Where do you do antibiotic residue testing on milk?

Testing for antibiotic residue in milk is vital at every stage of the production process. If the milk is found to contain antibiotics, then the entire tanker of milk will be discarded. The individual farm samples will be further examined to identify the source of the contaminated milk. The farmer who is responsible will have to reimburse the entire load of milk which would cost thousands of pounds. Along with the fine, the farmer will have their licence suspended until they can produce a negative antibiotic result in his milk. Over a given time period, if the farm has had multiple violations, they may lose their permit to sell milk.
