It is hoped that this award scheme will encourage innovative and diverse projects, help support personal development, and contribute to Moredun’s mission to improve the health and welfare of livestock. 

Ian Duncan Millar, Chairman of The Moredun Foundation, is delighted to announce the launch of the next round of funding.  He commented,

We have been delighted by the quality of projects that this scheme has supported over the past six years. It is a great way for those interested in livestock health and welfare to pursue a short term project and further develop their own knowledge and skills within the industry. We are looking forward to supporting a new round of projects and individuals, helping to broaden their horizons, while adding useful knowledge to the promotion of livestock health and welfare.”

Professor Lee Innes, Moredun’s Director of Communications, added,

Moredun acknowledges the value of education, experience and travel to improve understanding of the farming and livestock industries and provide individuals with the opportunity to further their experiences and personal development. We are very excited about the next round of funding and look forward to enabling innovative individuals to develop their own project ideas.”
