The Vet Sciences Building on the campus of the University College Dublin was the location for a talk on Wednesday 26th October. This talk was between the UCD Farm Animal Vet Society and Bimeda.
The guest speaker on the night was Professor Michael Doherty, Dean of the UCD Veterinary Science Faculty. Professor Doherty did a presentation entitled “All Creatures Mor agus Beag; Tales from Practise”. It was a most interesting and insightful presentation on practising veterinary medicine in Ireland.
Andrew Glynn, Head of Sales for Ireland, also did a presentation on the night. This presentation focused on Bimeda as company. He explained how Bimeda had started life as a small company in Ireland and how, over the years, it has grown into a global company that operates in 75 countries. He also spoke about Boviseal and its importance in the Irish dairy industry.
The talk was a great success and once again demonstrates Bimeda’s commitment to up-and-coming Irish veterinarians.
Bimeda were very proud to sponsor the annual University College Dublin (UCD) Vet Soc Lecture this year. The event was held on Tuesday 24th October in the Veterinary Science Building, UCD in Belfield, Dublin. The main event centred on veterinary internships, hosted by Seamus Hoey of UCD.
Bimeda was represented by Andrew Glynn (Head of Sales) and Paudie Hyland MVB – pictured with Diarmuid Ryan, Auditor of UCD Vet Soc.
There was a presentation on the company, made by Andrew Glynn, which detailed Bimeda’s evolution from a small Irish company to a global player on the world stage. Paudie Hyland then delivered a compelling presentation on the topic of teat sealing for Selective Dry Cow Therapy (SDCT). He advocated that using a quality teat seal (such as Boviseal) plays an important part in SDCT and in sealing heifers.
The event was a great success and Bimeda were delighted to support it. Bimeda’s sponsorship demonstrates the commitment the company has to engaging with the next generation of veterinary surgeons.
The National Dairy Show was held on Saturday 21st October in the Green Glens Arena, Millstreet, Co Cork.
The show is a major event in the dairy calendar with competitors travelling from all over Ireland to compete. It is a major industry event, with many key players in the Irish agricultural industry present.
Bimeda were proud to support the show this year with a stand. The day was a great success with a great crowd, despite the less than helpful Irish weather! There were four Bimeda representatives at the National Dairy Show: Andrew Glynn (Head of Sales), Tim Kirby (Commercial Vet), John Sheerin (Sales Representative) and Faith Morris (Marketing Executive). There was much interest in the stand with all the Bimeda representatives kept busy! There was a competition on the stand as well and the winner will be announced shortly.
The National Dairy Show was a great triumph and Bimeda were very pleased to be a contributing factor in that success.
