Maritime Quality Milk (MQM) is a research and service program at the Atlantic Veterinary College, located at the University of Prince Edward Island in Charlottetown. MQM focuses on milk quality and Johne’s disease research, the primary health priorities of the Dairy Farmers of Canada. By integrating research and service capacity, MQM has become one of the leading dairy health centers in Canada.
In addition to farm-focused research activity, MQM develops and evaluates new animal health technologies and offers productivity and disease surveillance services to the industry. Access to these services improves raw milk quality at the farm gate and decreases health costs.
