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 $50,000 check to UK.
“Next year, Lloyd’s will celebrate a quarter century of financial support for the University of Kentucky’s research dedicated to equine health,” said Julian Lloyd, chair of Lloyd’s Livestock Committee and bloodstock underwriter at the Amlin Syndicate. “The excitement of seeing the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years reminds us of the global appreciation of the Thoroughbred industry, and we are proud of our partnership’s dedication to equine health.”
The partnership supports Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly, a research-based publication dedicated to equine health, 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 Nancy Cox, UKAg dean and director. “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. The Quarterly reaches more than 18,000 readers in 102 countries. Available in paper and online, its articles are regularly reprinted in numerous scientific and lay equine publications worldwide.
