The Bearded Collie Club of Scotland have organised a
genetics/veterinary seminar on Saturday 13th November at Belstane
Bowling Club, Wishaw ML2 0HQ
The speakers are:- Dr Amy Jane McKnight (geneticist, City Hospital &
Queens University, Belfast). Dr McKnight has had access to the KC
database and has offered to give detailed answers to any specific
questions sent to her in advance. Dr McKnight has bred shetland
sheepdogs for many years under the affix Cinbaramy and we look
forward excitedly to hearing what she has to say about the gene pool
and prospects of the bearded collie!
Dr Hal Thompson, who retired on 20th September
2010 from Glasgow Vet School, is the internationally recognized
pathologist who was involved in the initial studies here at the Vet
School when Parvovirus was an emerging problem. He has also gone on
to be our Crime Scene Investigating Pathologist having been called as
an Expert Witness on many court cases. Hal is probably the most
entertaining and knowledgeable speaker we have had at the Vet School.
His lectures and seminars are legendary, as is the wide range of
subjects he covers. Come and ask all your questions about vaccines!
You will be missing a real treat if you don't come to hear him.
The seminar will start with registration at 9.30 (with tea/coffee &
biscuits!) and the first talk will begin at 10.00am. The afternoon talk
will begin at 2.00pm. Buffet lunch is included in the price of £12.00.
