The son of a distinguished veterinary professor, Andrew is an internationally recognised academic despite being immersed in everyday general practice since joining as a new graduate in 1981. He now acts as an international consultant on mastitis, tuberculosis and cattle health in general. A past president of the British Cattle Veterinary Association, he was awarded the BVA Dalrymple-Champneys Cup and Medal in 2015 and has recently been awarded the title of Fellow of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for Meritorious Contribution to Clinical Practice. He has written and lectured extensively and produced his own textbook “Mastitis in Cattle” as well as setting up and running The Vale Veterinary Laboratory.

P.S. if you need a good game of squash, Andy is your man!
