New President for the Sheep Veterinary Society

Jimmy Wilson was elected as the new President of the Sheep Veterinary Society at their autumn conference held in Darlington earlier this month. He takes over from Dr. Fiona Lovatt who becomes Senior Vice-President and is joined on the Committee by new Junior Vice-President Tim Bebbington.

The Sheep Veterinary Society brings together vets, advisers and flock owners from all over the United Kingdom, Europe and the wider world who are interested primarily in the welfare of sheep. Sheep are farmed throughout the world and will live in marginal areas where nothing else will survive. They populate the remote areas of the country and especially in the area where I live, the Highlands and Islands in the west of Scotland.

The Society runs webinars throughout the year relating to sheep and their care. These webinars are very welcome to practitioners who live in remote areas and who are unable to travel to cities and towns to participate in other meetings.

The Society is holding two conferences in the coming year in The Midlands area in the spring and on the Isle of Mull in the autumn.

Our Aim

“To promote the prevention
of disease and the welfare of
sheep by providing a forum
for discussion, distribution of
research results and provision
of advice on veterinary
matters relating to sheep”
