At this year's BEVA Congress, The BEVA Equine Welfare Award sponsored by Blue Cross was awarded to Dr Peter Rossdale OBE FRCVS for championing the cause of equine welfare through continuing education within all sectors of the profession.
The attractive award, a special commission crafted in Ireland from bog oak, yew and pine (all almost five millennia old), was presented last month at the ICC in Birmingham and was received on Peter's behalf by Rossdales partner, Deidre Carson.
In his early career as a stud vet Peter became the leading figure in establishing equine perinatology as a scientific discipline, and in doing so stimulated research collaboration around the world, as well as being the founder of Rossdales.
He was editor of the Equine Veterinary Journal from 1980 to 2011, securing its place in the top 10 of the world’s veterinary journals. In 1986 he launched Equine Veterinary Education and established it as the leading journal for equine practitioners.
