When deliveries are not made daily, aliquot samples of sufficient quantity shall be taken from each delivery so that the resulting composite sample is at least four ounces. A composite sample of milk may not represent more than 16 days' production. Each composite sample shall be held for five days after testing; or</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; (2)&nbsp;&nbsp;Fresh milk samples must be of sufficient volume to permit a retest, but they may not be less than two ounces. The interval between sample collections may not be less than three days, and the samples shall be held for not less than two days after being tested. If the fresh milk sampling method of testing is used, the arithmetical average of three or more test results during a test period consisting of not more than 16 days or the average of four or more test results during a period consisting of not more than one month shall be adjusted to the nearest .1 percent. The results are the milk fat test for that period.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Source:</b> SL 1975, ch 16, &nbsp;&nbsp;1; 12 SDR 128, 12 SDR 154, effective July 1, 1986; 19 SDR 61, effective October 26, 1992.</p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>General Authority:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-18">40-32-18(2).</A></p> <p>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <b>Law Implemented:</b> SDCL <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-11">40-32-11</A>, <A HREF="/statutes/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=40-32-13">40-32-13.</A></p> </div> </body> </html>
