Explore the Many Benefits of ADSA Membership

ADSA was established in 1906 to advance the emerging discipline of dairy science and to improve scientific practices in the dairy industry. Today, ADSA is supported by a diverse and growing global membership.

Journal of Dairy Science®

Journal of Dairy Science

 The official journal of the American Dairy Science Association, Journal of Dairy Science (JDS) is the leading general dairy research journal in the world. JDS readers represent education, industry, and government agencies in more than 70 countries with interests in biochemistry, breeding, economics, engineering, environment, food science, genetics, microbiology, nutrition, pathology, physiology, processing, public health, quality assurance, and sanitation.

There is no better way to remain up to date on important advances in the dairy industry than having electronic access to JDS. The journal publishes original research, technical notes, current news items, and articles of general interest to leaders in the dairy industry. Every issue of JDS, starting with the first issue published in 1917 and continuing up to the present, is available as part of the ADSA membership package.

Other Benefits

ADSA Awards Program
One of ADSA’s five organizational objectives is to recognize ADSA members for outstanding personal achievement. ADSA accomplishes this objective through partnering with more than 20 award sponsors and through making its own association and foundation awards. For professionals and students, ADSA supports a comprehensive Awards Program designed to identify and recognize those who have made important contributions to the dairy industry and the association.

Recorded Symposia Library
ADSA individual members enjoy access to a large and growing password protected library of recorded symposia.

Members start each week “in the know” with ADSA’s industry e-newsletter Dairy-e-News. From timely topics and important announcements, to the best industry calendar of events, dairy industry professionals turn to Dairy-e-News. News of the association is published each April and October fall in ADSA News.

Member Directory
ADSA makes it easy for its members to stay in touch with professional colleagues by publishing an online directory of members of the founders of the Federation of Animal Science Societies: The American Dairy Science Association, the American Society of Animal Science, and the Poultry Science Association. Beyond helping you stay in touch, this unique database of more than 6,200 individual members is highly searchable for those times when you need to reach out to members with specific expertise.

ADSA Web Site
The ADSA web site has the latest association and industry information including national and branch meeting plans; board, committee, and staff listings; JDS author instructions; job postings; dairy publications listings; and more. These areas of the home page are accessible to all visitors.

Your Voice For Science
In addition to advocacy efforts of its own, ADSA supports a science policy program hosted by FASS, to create a voice for animal science. The success of the FASS program has been driven by an effective partnership between The Randel Group and active participation by committed members of the FASS Science Policy Committee. The Randel Group represents FASS in Washington, DC as well as at other events and meetings throughout the country. The vision of this program is to serve as the “go to” source and communicator of policies that are founded in sound science and to promote FASS as a leading authority on issues across the animal sciences at the local, state, regional, national, and global levels.
