Lloyd’s of London and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment celebrated a 28-year partnership in support of the horse industry. Representatives of Lloyd’s recently presented a $50,000 check to UK for continued funding of the international publication, the Equine Disease Quarterly.

“Lloyd’s is very pleased to have been a supporter of the University of Kentucky for nearly three decades.  The Quarterly is the premier publication of its kind, supporting equine health and furthering the positive interests of equine stakeholders worldwide,” said Patrick Talley, U.S. Central Regional Director for Lloyd’s America.

“Lloyd’s of London is a global leader in insuring the world’s most valuable bloodstock, and we applaud the tireless work of the University, and, through this excellent publication, advancing knowledge and horse welfare within the United States and worldwide,’’ said David Ashby, CEO of Ashby Underwriting and outgoing chair of Lloyd’s Livestock Committee.

The Equine Disease Quarterly is a publication of UK’s Department of Veterinary Science, the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory and the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center.

“The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is very grateful to Lloyd’s of London for its long-standing support of the Veterinary Science Department since 1985 and of the Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly for 28 years,” said Dean Nancy Cox. “We have few partnerships that endure this many years and we strive every day to provide relevant information to preserve the special status that the Equine Disease Quarterly has in the international equine world.”

The award-winning publication provides timely and authoritative reports on some of the most important issues facing the equine industry. The Quarterly reaches more than 14,500 readers in at least 100 countries. Available in digital and print format, its articles regularly are reprinted in scientific and worldwide, lay equine publications.
