NMC Mission Statement
Provide a forum for education and global exchange of information on milk quality, mastitis and relevant research.
Communicate that information to the dairy industry enabling it to control mastitis and improve milk quality.
Recipients of the National Dairy Quality Awards (NDQA) were honored at the National Mastitis Council 54th Annual Meeting, held in Memphis, Tennessee, February 1-3, 2015. The NDQA program recognizes dairy producers from across the United States who produce high quality milk while implementing management practices that focus on udder health and animal well being.
Honored during the NMC awards luncheon, the top-ranked Platinum winners were: Mike, Jean, Brent, Brock and Nelda Bailey, and Florieda Gorham, Tomah, Wisconsin; Randy and Kathy Bauer, Faribault, Minnesota; Jeremy Beebe, Whittemore, Michigan; Michael Kleinhans, Kiel, Wisconsin; Duane and Janet Molhoek, Falmouth, Michigan; Brent, Nancy, Tyler and Ben Wilson, Carson City, Michigan; Mike, Lorene, Andrew and Bobbi Zagata, Sebewaing, Michigan.
In addition to the six Platinum winners, there were also 17 Gold and 17 Silver NDQA winners. These farms were selected from more than 160 applications submitted for the 2014 awards. Farms are nominated by professionals who serve the dairy industry such as dairy plant field staff, veterinarians, extension specialists, and DHI supervisors.
