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 and beef farmers in Great Britain. The portfolio of services provides dairy farmers, beef farmers, nutritionists and vets with data to measure and manage their 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 new privately-owned CIS Laboratory at Scope House, Telford, Shropshire. This testing facility, under its robust Quality Management System, is UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2017 and ICAR approved.

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.
