The National Mastitis Council (NMC) will host its 55th Annual Meeting, Jan. 31-Feb. 2, 2016 at the Renaissance Hotel in Glendale, Arizona.

This three-day international forum will provide milk quality professionals the opportunity to exchange information on udder health, milking management and milk quality. Anyone with a vested interest in milk quality – milk quality specialists, veterinarians, milk plant field staff, dairy suppliers, dairy producers, university researchers, extension specialists and students – is invited to attend and exchange ideas.
This year’s program will feature sessions including:

·         The Science of Motivating Behavioral Change

·         Animal Well-being and the Intersection with Milk Quality

·         Judicious Drug Use and the Intersection with Milk Quality

·         Implementing and Sustaining Behavioral Change – Putting Theory into Practice

In addition to the main program, the annual meeting will include a variety of specialized short courses, committee meetings, open discussion groups, poster sessions, research and development summaries and a tentative new pre-conference farm tour. Additional program details will be available soon on the NMC website:

“We’re excited to come together with milk quality professionals from around the world,” says Dr. Sandra Godden, DVM, DVSc, professor at University of Minnesota and 2016 NMC annual meeting program chair. “Through networking and learning together at the annual meeting, we have a unique opportunity to share and gain valuable insight.”
