NMC Mission Statement
Provide a forum for education and global exchange of information on milk quality, mastitis and relevant research.
Communicate that information to the dairy industry enabling it to control mastitis and improve milk quality.
Make your plans now to join us for the National Mastitis Council 53rd Annual Meeting, January 26-28, 2014, in Fort Worth, Texas.

Submissions for the NMC Technology Transfer Session (TTS) are now being accepted. Held each year during the National Mastitis Council Annual Meeting, the TTS supplements the program by providing mastitis and milk quality information through the use of posters and one-on-one interaction.
TTS participants also have the option to submit their paper for consideration as an oral presentation during the Research and Development Summaries Session. This session offers the opportunity for graduate students and new researchers to be involved in the oral presentations at the NMC meeting.
The submission deadline is October 25, 2013. [more details here]
If you are interested in presenting a poster at the 2014 NMC Technology Transfer Session (TTS) …. details will be posted soon on the NMC website.
The TTS is held each year during the NMC Annual Meeting. The goal of the TTS is to share research data and teach fundamental principles of products, technologies, and services that have application in mastitis control and quality milk production. Individuals are invited to submit a two-page paper summarizing the information presented. Accepted papers will be published in the NMC Annual Meeting Proceedings. The submission deadline is October 25, 2013.
