The well-established and successful partnership between Lloyd’s of London and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment continued when representatives from Lloyd’s recently presented a check to UK.
“We are very pleased to announce an increase in Lloyd’s annual support from $45,000 to $50,000,” said Julian Lloyd, chair of Lloyd’s Livestock Committee and bloodstock underwriter at the Amlin Syndicate. “For 22 years, the Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly has served as the benchmark publication for support of equine health. Lloyd’s long-standing financial commitment to the University of Kentucky exceeded $1 million a few years ago, and this increase will help to ensure continued global distribution of this leading-edge publication.”
The Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly, a research-based publication dedicated to equine health, is produced by the UK Department of Veterinary Science.
“The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is grateful to Lloyd’s of London for this long-standing and unique support of the veterinary science department in general since 1985, and of the Equine Disease Quarterly since 1992,” said Dr. Nancy Cox, UKAg dean and director. “This year’s support brings their total investment to more than $1.1 million. We appreciate Lloyd’s long-standing confidence in the impact of our Equine Disease Quarterly.”
The award-winning publication includes articles written by prominent researchers from around the world and provides timely and authoritative reports on some of the most important issues facing the equine industry.
