This rep is new at his job, but he grew up on a dairy farm, so he seemed pretty comfortable.
There are also mandated state milk inspectors. The state of Michigan had to eliminate one of their inspections due to budget cuts, so the co-op picked it up. It seems imperfect because it's your own c-op inspecting you, but they're even harder on you than the state, because they want to make sure that when the state inspects you you're free of problem areas.
It's always a surprise inspection, and he looks through the parlor, the milk house, the utility room, and goes through a checklist.
We passed with flying colors as usual. I just hope he doesn't bring those white gloves of his in my house.
