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.
The National Mastitis Council 54th Annual Meeting is scheduled for February 1-3, 2015, at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. This international conference will provide milk quality professionals the opportunity to exchange information on udder health, milking management and milk quality.
Everyone with an interest in quality milk production — veterinarians, milk plant field staff, equipment and animal health suppliers, dairy producers, milk quality consultants, university researchers, extension specialists and students — is invited to attend and exchange ideas.
General information is available here. Details will be posted as they become available.
All of the papers and posters presented at the National Mastitis Council Regional Meeting, held August 4-6, in Ghent, Belgium, are available in the NMC Online Proceedings Library.
The NMC Online Proceedings Library includes papers from all of the NMC annual and regional meetings back to 2001. Hundreds of papers are available for viewing and download.
Access to the online library is limited to NMC members, via the “members only” section of the NMC website.
