MilkedIn App and Test Results

The MilkedIn mobile app available to all Drinagh suppliers has now been upgraded. The latest benefit of the mobile app is that all results of any individual samples sent to Carbery for analysis will be sent back to the app once available. This will mean that suppliers will no longer have to ring up for results or wait for their next collection.

Once results are available, they will automatically be updated to the app and the information will be back to you as soon as is possible. Please see pictures below for further assistance in navigating through the new app feature.

Step 1: Select the new 'Cow Testing' option on the Drinagh MilkedIn menu Step 2: Individual cow sample results will be available to view in this section
