NMC Meetings

NMC holds two meetings a year. The NMC Annual Meeting is a four-day conference held during the third week of January. The NMC Regional Meeting is a two-day conference, typically held in the summer.



National Mastitis Council
Regional Meeting

August 4-6, 2014
Ghent, Belgium

Make your plans now to attend the 2014 NMC Regional Meeting, August 4-6 in Ghent, Belgium. This meeting will mark the first time an NMC Regional Meeting will be held outside North America. Previous meetings have been held in Canada and Mexico, however NMC has never had a meeting in Europe.

The regional meeting provides attendees with information and skills necessary to strengthen milk quality programs and increase dairy profitability. The conference also provides an excellent opportunity to network with individuals from around the world who share the common interest of quality milk production. The meeting is being organized jointly with the M-team at Ghent University.

The program will include general sessions, workshops, short courses and seminars. Social activities include an opening reception in the "Aula" of Ghent University, and a dinner at the historic "Castle of the Count" (Gravensteen) in the center of Ghent.
