Pro to the question "Is Drinking Milk Healthy for Humans?"

“The scope of NMC reaches beyond mastitis into all aspects of milk quality. It’s no longer simply mastitis. We’re also about quality, food safety, shelf life, and bacteria counts. Our objectives are to help deliver high-quality, healthy dairy products to consumers everywhere.”

The NMC is headquartered in Verona, Wisconsin, located just outside of Madison, the capital of Wisconsin.”
