Vets receive awards celebrating achievements

A number of awards were made to vets across the profession at BVA Members’ Day. These included BVA awards for outstanding contributions to veterinary science and services to the profession in the UK and in developing countries, travel awards for veterinary students and recent graduates, and contributions to BVA Council.

  • The Dalrymple-Champneys Cup and Medal for work of outstanding merit, which it is considered will encourage the advancement of veterinary science, was awarded to Professor Julie Fitzpatrick OBE in recognition of her significant work leading research into livestock health and welfare both in the UK and internationally.
  • The Chiron Award, presented by BVA for outstanding contributions to veterinary science or for outstanding services to the profession, judged in either case as being of a calibre commanding international or inter-professional recognition, was awarded to Dr Anthony Andrews for his lifetime’s work advancing expertise and specialism in the ruminant sector.
  • The Bleby Cup was awarded to Winchester’s David Harwood, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to BVA Council, the Association’s key debating chamber and decision-making body, particularly in relation to goat welfare.
