Ambic Bids Farewell to Mike Tyler with an Unconventional ‘Virtual’ Retirement Party!

Reluctant to miss the opportunity to say a proper fond farewell to Mike Tyler, Ambic’s Financial Controller, who retired after more than 14 years in the job, staff at Ambic organised a virtual or ‘on-line’ retirement party for him just before the Easter break.

Office staff working from home joined production staff in Witney by dialling in to a virtual on-line meeting to hear Colin Kingston, Ambic’s MD, sing Mike’s praises for his dedication to Ambic in helping to steer Ambic through a period of significant growth and change.

Mike will be invited back to Ambic once conditions return to normal for a more conventional celebration.

MilkSampler Improvement

Following the addition of ultra-sonic welding of the MilkSampler Cap to the MilkSampler Body in 2013 an O-Ring has now been added to the external seal, as illustrated below, in order to prevent any ingress of moisture between the MilkSampler Cap and the MilkSampler Body.

 

The Ambic MilkSampler has proven to be a very popular herd management tool which is ideal for checking the constituents of milk, such as protein levels, for determining somatic cell counts and for taking Bactoscan measurements.

It is ideally suited to the NMR Essential Sampling Service in the UK as well as for comparable schemes that operate in a number of markets.

For more details on the Ambic MilkSampler visit the web page.

Ambic presents udder health research at British Mastitis Conference.

Ambic has published the results of three research projects it has conducted over a five-year period in collaboration with The Dairy Group on different teat sanitisation methods.  The results were presented in a paper and two posters displayed at the recent British Mastitis Conference (www.britishmastitisconference.org.uk)  which was held in Worcester on 7th November 2018.

The paper, which compared the three teat sanitisation methods, was presented by Dr Brian Pocknee of The Dairy Group (www.thedairygroup.co.uk) and provoked some useful discussion, as did two posters, one presenting the results of the research into teat coverage for dipping, the other providing a comparison of the three methods investigated – manual teat spraying using a vacuum operated teat sprayer, manual teat dipping using a dip cup and automated teat spraying on a rotary milking platform using Ambic’s Locate’n’Spray system™.
