The Number One Farmer Owned Milk Recording Company

The Cattle Information Service (CIS) is a leading provider of milk recording and health testing services for dairy farmers in Great Britain. The portfolio of services help dairy farmers, nutritionists and vets to measure and manage dairy herds by not only looking at the quality of milk produced but by also assessing the health and fertility of each individual animal and the herd as a whole.

Milk samples collected on farm provide a wealth of information and data to assist in making informed decisions about current and future herd performance. All milk testing analysis is performed at the privately-owned CIS Laboratory in Telford, Shropshire. This testing facility, under its robust Quality Management System, is UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ICAR approved, operating 7 days a week.

CIS has been associated with milk recording since 1903. The business has an experienced team of Area Managers and Milk Recorders operating across Great Britain providing farmers with insight from milk, blood and tissue samples with data accessible from the secure online portal YourHerd or the MobileHerd app.

A NEW Treatment Page feature has been added to MobileHerd - Download the new version of the app now. Read more...
