Udderly Ridiculous 5K Fun Run/Walk

For the first time in NMC history, the annual meeting includes a 5K Fun Run/Walk. This fundraiser supports the NMC Scholars program. For just $25, you can burn some calories, chat with a friend, support this worthy cause and receive a T-shirt.

The registration fee is just $25 and includes a limited-edition T-shirt, designed by Leigh Rubin, Rubes Cartoons. Register for the run when you register for the meeting.


Rubin, the creator of Rubes Cartoons and a syndicated cartoonist in more than 400 media outlets worldwide, graciously donated his services to create the T-shirt design. Also, Rubin wrote and designed “The Big Book of Moo” (for National Dairy Herd Information Association), which appeared at the 2017 NMC Annual Meeting Silent Auction.

Proceeds from the Udderly Ridiculous 5K Fun Run/Walk support the NMC Scholars program. The run/walk course, located near the Hilton Tucson El Conquistador Resort, promises breathtaking views of the Southwest. Udder Health Systems, Inc. (locations in Meridian and Jerome, Idaho; Logan, Utah; and Bellingham, Wash.), Gardner & Gardner Communications, New Prague, Minn.; Christian Hill Dairy, Lomira, Wis.; and Arizona Milk Producers, Tempe, Ariz.; are sponsoring the event.


Rubes Cartoons feature animal-centric designs and humor. Visit Rubin’s website at: www.rubescartoons.com.

Milk will be provided at the finish line.

The route map includes a one-mile loop, or a 5K run option.
