2022 National Mastitis Council Annual Meeting | Feb 1-3, 2022

Join NMC in San Diego, California, USA or virtually for its 61st Annual Meeting. NMC is offering the NMC Annual Meeting General Sessions virtually (via Zoom) and in person.  

Each year, the National Mastitis Council holds an annual meeting in late January/early February in the United States, and a regional meeting in North America. The annual meeting typically attracts about 400 people from 20-plus countries around the world. Designed for all individuals interested in mastitis control, quality milk production and udder health, attendees include veterinarians, dairy producers, researchers, extension specialists, industry suppliers, dairy processor field representatives, regulatory officials, teachers and students. The meeting features world-renowned presenters who discuss a variety of milk quality production principles and offer hands-on strategies to improve udder health. Plus, several researchers present posters during the Technology Transfer Session.

Held in a dairy-centric area, the NMC Regional Meeting targets dairy producers and bovine veterinarians. Several researchers, extension specialists, industry suppliers, dairy processor field representatives and teachers also attend the regional meeting. This event provides a forum for delivering and sharing information about udder health, mastitis control, milking management, milk quality and animal well-being through major presentations, short courses (workshops) and tours.

While these in-person events offer numerous networking and collaborative opportunities, NMC understands that not everyone interested in building their milk quality/udder health/mastitis prevention, treatment and control knowledge can attend. Thus, NMC members may access presentation recordings from some of the group’s events. Just log in to the NMC Member Center and click on the pertinent icon to access recordings. Also, NMC members may access webinar recordings on this web page.
