Drop boxes are available for forage, feed, water and manure samples. In addition to the drop box at the Batavia Forage Lab (Batavia, NY), there are 10 drop box locations starting from Landpro Equipment in Clymer, NY to Landpro Equipment in Avon, NY.
Samples left at the Batavia Forage lab are picked up throughout the day Monday through Friday. Samples left at locations 1-5 are picked up after 7:00 AM Monday through Friday. Samples left at locations 6-10 are picked up on Wednesday only. Significant snow may delay the pick-up of samples at times so please plan accordingly. There is no pickup on holidays when the lab is not in operation. See HERE for a list of holiday closings.
All samples left at locations 1-10 are taken to our Batavia, NY lab for processing. For Central NY, refer to our corresponding drop box location listings. There is a $3.00 per sample handling fee for utilizing a drop box.
USING THE DROP BOX
When dropping off samples, please send a text message to the number on the top of the drop box with the location, account name or number, and number of samples dropped. This information will assist us in planning the pick-up on any given day. If necessary, drivers may skip boxes if we do not receive a text due to traffic backups or weather issues.
Results for NIR analysis should be available the next business day, following drop off. Sample bags and testing information are available at each drop location. Supplies may also be requested by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be respectful of the businesses that have given permission for us to place drop boxes at their locations. Thank them for that privilege if you have opportunity.
