Biography

After graduation, I was a practitioner in mixed veterinary practice in Scotland (3 man rural farm practice, 1992 - 1994) and in Berkshire (16 man mixed and equine practice, 1994 - 1998). I carried out farm animal and companion animal clinical work, (and in practice in Scotland - wildlife clinical work related to birds and marine mammals). In Scotland I was an OVS (Official Veterinary Surgeon) carrying out statutory disease work and meat hygiene duties. I came to Langford from veterinary practice to carry out production, pathology and welfare research in the Division of Farm Animal Science, and have remained here.     

   I have researched, and published on poultry production disease and pathology, cattle disease, and assessment methods in pigs, cattle, poultry and wild animals. I teach on all of the courses currently offered at Langford, and enjoy teaching and student contact. I am recognised at a national and international level for my work on animal production, animal ethical and animal use and abuse issues, and animal welfare assessment systems. I contribute to government committees, international meetings, collaborative international research, work on standards and international legislation in animal production and also provide training in the UK, Europe and Internationally in areas of animal welfare during production and animal use. 

I provide teaching in the areas of Poultry diseases and production, Animal Welfare and Legislation, Animal Cruelty and the Law, first principle lectures on animal disease, reproduction, behavioural biology and animal welfare assessment. I enjoy teaching and student contact and believe that is is good to involve students in animal use, welfare, and health and disease projects. I provide teaching on the BVSc (Veterinary Science), BSc (Behaviour and Welfare)  teaching and practical modules on the MSc (Meat Science) course.
