CVAS South Central PA Sample Pick Up System

A PDF version of this information as well as a map and location images can be found HERE.

Drop boxes are available for forage, feed, water and manure samples.  There are 6 drop box locations starting from White Oak Mills in Elizabethtown, PA and ending at Greencastle Livestock Market in Greencastle, PA.

Samples left at these locations are picked up daily, Monday through Friday.  There is no pickup on holidays when the lab is not in operations.  See HERE for a list of holiday closings.

All samples left at these locations are taken to our Waynesboro, PA lab for processing.  For Eastern PA, refer to our Eastern PA drop box location listing.


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.

Clients utilizing our drop box route system will be billed $3.00 per sample to underwrite the cost of drivers, vehicle use, and mileage.

Results for NIR analysis should be available the same day as the samples are picked up at the drop box.  Sample bags and testing information are available at each drop box location.  Supplies may also be requested by emailing

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 the opportunity.
