    Event Description

    This Thursdays Clinical talk will be given by our Dean, Professor Michael Doherty, in Room 115 VET at 7pm, on everything you need to know for lambing this Spring! This is now an annual talk, and always has great tips for those of you heading off to pull a few lambs in your march break! This talk is aimed towards first and second years, but will be great revision for anyone interested in farm animal practice.

A graduate of the University of Edinburgh, his background is in cattle practice including a period at the University of Glasgow's teaching practice.

An Executive Member of Animal Health Ireland, he is currently involved along with UCD colleagues in the promotion and development of national dairy herd health programmes in Ireland.
