Lloyd's of London, Univ. of Kentucky Continue Partnership

The long-standing and successful partnership between Lloyd’s of London and the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Agriculture, Food, and Environment continued when representatives from Lloyd’s recently presented a check for $45,000 to UK.

The contribution supports the Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly, a research-based publication dedicated to equine health produced by the UK Department of Veterinary Science.

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, including on TheHorse.com

"Last year, Lloyd's cumulative support surpassed the $1 million mark. That speaks significantly of the market's long-standing commitment for supporting equine research and health," said Julian Lloyd, bloodstock underwriter with Amlin and chair of Lloyd's Livestock Committee. “This year's contribution of $45,000 continues that effort, and we are proud to support the global distribution of Equine Disease Quarterly."

Mats Troedsson, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACT, ECAR, chair of the Department of Veterinary Science and director of the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center, agreed.

“The Equine Disease Quarterly is a valuable and popular source of information to equine veterinarians and industry leaders around the world, and the contributions from Lloyd’s cannot be overemphasized,” he said. “We are very thankful and proud of the long-standing support that has made the success of the Quarterly possible, and we are looking forward to future years of collaborations with Lloyd’s.”

Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly is available to subscribers at no charge and is co-edited by Roberta Dwyer, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVPM; Peter Timoney, FRCVS, PhD; and Neil Williams, DVM, PhD, Dipl. ACVP, from the Department of Veterinary Science.
