New graduates win prestigious awards
Thursday 11th October 2012
Two of our newly graduated Veterinary students have won prestigious national prizes this year.
Emily Gascoigne was one of the winners of the Royal Association of British Dairy Farmers' annual Farm Health Management Award, which was introduced in 2007 as part of the Farm Health Planning initiative. Open to agriculture and veterinary students, the entrants were required to prepare a 1,500 word essay demonstrating their understanding of proactive farm health management on dairy and or beef units.
Elizabeth Hurd received the British Equine Veterinary Association Trust Queen Mother Award for her report on her four week large animal externship at the University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Centre. This award is given annually for the best travel report by a recipient of the Queen Mother Student Travel Award, which Elizabeth was granted in 2011. Elizabeth was presented with her award by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal.
Many congratulations to Emily and Elizabeth.
