Online Submission Forms

General Submission Form:

Sampling Instructions:

Your analysis is only as good as the sample you send to the lab. Accurate and quality testing begins with sample collection and proper subsampling procedures. Below are some examples of how to properly collect samples.

Bales:

For best results use a commercial forage sampler and take core samples from several random bales. Sample the bales from either the end of a square bale or the rounded side of a round bale. Take multiple cores and mix them in a bag to make a representative sample.

**Using a feed probe will improve subsample quality and give you more accurate results. Feed probes are available for rent from the lab at $5 a day.**

Silage:

Take representative samples from several locations. Pack the sample tightly into a bag, removing the air and then seal and freeze the sample.

Swathed crops:

Do your best to get a representative number of plants. Cut them up into small pieces and then put them in a sealed bag and get them to the lab as soon as possible.

Growing plants:

Do your best to get samples of multiple plants from different areas to get a representative sample. Cut the plants into small pieces and mix the plants together.

Sample Submission Instructions:

Ensure the right sample size is submitted. As a rule of thumb, two cups of sample should be sufficient, but check with the lab to ensure you have the right amount of sample for the test you are requesting. Limit the sample size to what is needed.

***Please note, excessively large samples will be charged a $5.00 handling fee.***

When submitting the samples, use plastic bags to ensure accurate moisture levels. Bags are available from the lab free of charge. You can order them online on the Products page or call or drop by to pick some up. Make sure to use a meaningful identification for the sample; labeling the samples as 1,2,3 today may not make sense a month later. Samples submitted without proper paperwork will be placed on hold until the paperwork has been submitted. You can download and print the paperwork or submit your form online through the Files & Online Submissions tab at the top of this page.

When submitting custom feed blends or samples for poultry testing, we require the percentage of each ingredient the feed is composed of in order for energies to be calculated. If you have questions, please ask the lab.

What to test:

Our most common beef cattle package is the FD10 or FD11 - depending on if you want the relative feed value (RFV). An explanation for each of the terms used in our packages (such as ADF, NDF, etc.) is available in Alberta Agriculture and Forestry's Know Your Feed Terms pamphlet. 

If you have had hail, frost, or are suspecting nitrate poisoning, get the FDN test. Nitrate poisoning is a real risk and information on levels of toxicity can be found at the following link: Nitrate Poisoning in Cattle.
