The National Mastitis Council invites dairy enthusiasts to attend its Regional Meeting celebrating another year of dedication to reducing mastitis and enhancing milk quality.

The meeting is open to dairy farmers and their employees, veterinarians, university researchers and extension specialists, milk quality specialists, dairy advisors and students. It will take place on August 15-16, 2012 at the Holiday Inn City Centre, Sioux Falls, S.D.

The NMC Regional Meeting is a two-day forum for dairy professionals to exchange information about practical, on-farm aspects of udder health, mastitis control, milking management and milk quality. This year’s Regional Meeting features a new format consisting of short courses to provide attendees with hands-on learning in small group sessions.

Short courses offered to attendees will cover a range of topics geared towards dairy producers, their employees and milk quality advisers. Topics include: milking system testing and analysis, motivating dairy farm employees, bulk tank and milk sampling techniques and interpretation of results, a session for Spanish speaking milkers, and other topics. Some short courses will provide on-farm opportunities to apply knowledge gained.
