Peak Serum, Inc., a Wellington-based privately owned and independent supplier of life science laboratory products has established a partnership with Longs Peak Dairy in Pierce, Colorado. Longs Peak has enlisted Peak Serum’s support of production safety and standards by incorporating the supplier’s eco-friendly and biodegradable nitrile SHOWA Gloves from its line of accessories, Peak Products into its supply chain process.
“Our industry has developed greatly since the days of our dairy’s inception in 1968, with Virgil Podtburg milking just 40 cows in Johnstown,” said Rick Podtburg, co-owner of Longs Peak Dairy. “Over time, while the market has grown, so has our passion. Peak Products is helping us keep our promise to produce the highest-quality product.”
Nitrile gloves benefit agriculture, especially dairy farming, as milk is the most regulated and tested food in the United States. Common advantages of use include cleaner milk due to less bacteria transfer, protection against repeated exposure to teat dips, and superior resistance to iodine used to prevent contamination between cows, a resistance not found with latex gloves.
“Our nitrile gloves are perfect for this application to support improved worker and animal health and the production of higher-quality milk,” said Tom Kutrubes, President and CEO of Peak Serum, Inc. “We are honored that our Peak Products have been entrusted with such a significant responsibility and look forward to continuing our positive impact for industries of all varieties.”

About Longs Peak Dairy
The Marrs family legacy began with a good ‘ole fashioned family vegetable farm and gradually blossomed into a dairy. With Denver’s boom in the mid 70’s the family relocated from their now suburban Broomfield location to the overview of the river and the majestic Rocky Mountains. In 1980, Marrs Milky Way Dairy built a dairy nestled in Fort Lupton, CO on the Platte River Valley below Denver, CO. Marrs Milky Way grew to 600 milking cows before merging in 1998 with the Podtburg family and becoming the modern day maternity home of 1300 milking holsteins, a heifer raising farm, 200 dairy steers and production agriculture. With the new partnership came a new name: Longs Peak Dairy with locations in Fort Lupton and Johnstown. In the year 2000, the families have once again expanded creating a new production home in Pierce, Colorado with Andrejeski Holsteins.
