The National Mastitis Council (NMC) will host its 54th Annual Meeting, Feb. 1-3, 2015 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tenn.

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:

  • Getting to the root cause of mastitis, a systems approach;
  • Influence of equipment and environment on milk quality;
  • Influence of people, monitoring and records on milk quality;
  • Milk quality: What the market needs, wants, demands.

In addition to the main program, the Annual Meeting will include a variety of specialized short courses, committee meetings, open discussion groups, poster sessions plus research and development summaries. Additional program details will be available soon on the NMC website: www.nmconline.org.

“We’re excited to welcome a distinguished group of milk quality professionals from around the world to Memphis,” says Gary Neubauer, senior manager, dairy technical services at Zoetis and 2015 NMC Annual Meeting Program Chairman. “As always, the networking and short courses will be a highlight, in addition to a top-notch schedule of educational programming.”
