The National Mastitis Council (NMC) will host its upcoming regional meeting July 28-29, at the Holiday Inn Syracuse/Liverpool in Syracuse, N.Y.

On-farm and classroom short courses will be held July 28, followed by the main program on July 29. Farm tours will be held the day after the meeting. Individuals from all segments of the dairy industry are encouraged to attend the meeting, which features networking and information sharing on udder health, milking management, milk quality and milk safety.

“The 2015 regional meeting is an event for anyone with an interest in milk quality,” says Frank Welcome, the 2015 NMC regional program chair and senior extension veterinarian with Quality Milk Production Services. “The Empire State is not only a hub for education, technology and research, it’s also home to an expansive dairy industry, making it a perfect location for our regional meeting.”

Milk quality specialists, veterinarians, dairy producers, milk plant field staff, dairy equipment and supply manufacturers, university researchers, extension specialists, students and others interested in the production of quality milk are encouraged to attend.
