The 2021 Annual Meeting of the American Dairy Science Association® (ADSA®) will be held as hybrid meeting with a virtual component and a corresponding in-person meeting in Louisville, Kentucky. As always it will be the most comprehensive dairy science meeting in the world. We are meeting in the same physical location as the American Society of Animal Science (ASAS), just prior to the ASAS Annual Meeting. There will be an overlap day of shared programming with ASAS on the final day of the ADSA Annual Meeting, along with a shared reception Wednesday evening. As a global forum for professionals, educators, and students, the meeting will attract dairy foods and dairy production specialists from more than 50 countries with common but diverse interests in the future of dairy science. Make your plans to be part of this global event.

The in-person registration fee includes the Opening Reception, coffee and pastries during morning poster sessions, afternoon ice cream breaks in the exhibit hall, our always-popular ice cream social, a meeting with really nice people, and the best dairy science you will find in the world!

Discover Conference 39
- A "Virtual" Success

Last week ADSA conducted its 39th Discover Conference: The Transition Period – From Physiology to Management, virtually.

Thank you again to the many hands who made this week possible: the program committee, moderators, speakers, graduate student helpers, and sponsors. The program committee included: Co-Chairs Stephen LeBlanc (University of Guelph) and Phil Cardoso (University of Illinois) as well as committee members Buzz Burhans (Dairy-Tech Group), Joe McFadden (Cornell University), Katy Proudfoot (University of Prince Edward Island), and Heather M. White (University of Wisconsin). For more information on the program that was presented, please visit the ADSA website here.
