Dr. Buckley Earns National Mastitis Council Honors

The National Mastitis Council (NMC) named Michelle Buckley, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa  among the eight selected as its 2024 Scholars.

The graduate students won an expense-paid trip to attend the 63rd NMC Annual Meeting, scheduled for Jan. 29-Feb. 1, in Dallas. This program strives to support the development of future udder health, milking management and milk quality specialists.

Buckley, a veterinarian, focuses on improving antimicrobial stewardship and milk quality in dairy goats. Her research project includes pharmacokinetic studies and evaluations of milk and tissue residues of dry cow products. Buckley also evaluates treatment efficacy and development of antimicrobial resistance. The final phase of her research is to develop resources for dairy goat producers to translate research into meaningful, actionable items, which producers can implement to improve milk quality and antimicrobial stewardship. One resource is a podcast: “Baas and Bleats.” She is also developing a website focused on improving dairy goat milk quality.
