Many congratulations to Bobby Hyde, who has recently become a Diplomat of the European College of Bovine Health Management (Dip. ECBHM). He joins an elite band of only 222 European Diplomats in this subject.
This specialist qualification is a result of three years’ hard work during Bobby’s residency at Nottingham Vet School, followed by a final exam. This is a very challenging exam which takes place over three days, and this year only four of the fifteen candidates passed (and these were fifteen of the brightest veterinary minds in Europe!).
Bobby would like to pass on his best wishes to all the Scarsdale farmers who have supported him during the past three years. He’s now looking forward to starting his PhD in calf management, again at Nottingham, aiming to identify which areas of management are most important for calf health and production, and consequently develop best practice plans for the industry.
We wish Bobby all the very best for the future! Emily Payne, who many of you already know, is the new resident and we look forward to working with her over the next three years.
