Various speakers: “Talking Sheep” – an insight into the world of ruminants from various biological perspectives!
Graham Kerr Building, 6:30pm. Food and drink provided! (Facebook Event Here)
This Thursday we will be having our final talk of the year in association with the Sheep Veterinary Society and MSD Health!
‘Talking Sheep’ is a nation wide talk scheme with an element of veterinary medicine. The scheme was initiated to give people an insight into the world of sheep and other ruminants, as well as linking it to wider ecosystems and parisitology/virology.
During the talk, we will be hearing about work done in various fields – including virology, parisitology and disease control – across the world as well as in our own country. Speakers will include Dr. Valentina Busin DVM MRCVS DipECSRHM, Mr. George King BVMS CertVC MRCVS, Mr. Richard Thompson BVSc CertSHP MRCVS and Hannah Davidson – a Zoology undergraduate student here at the University of Glasgow.
Since it’s a special, collaborative event there will even be some food and drink at the talk , so come along to enjoy a night of knowledge and festivities before we all go home for Christmas!
