The long-term partnership between Lloyd’s of London and the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture, Food and Environment celebrated 25 years of continued financial support when representatives from Lloyd’s recently presented a $50,000 check to UK.

“Lloyd’s has long been a leading bloodstock insurer in Kentucky, and a quarter century of financial support demonstrates the underwriters’ commitment to good equine health and cutting-edge research,” said Patrick Talley, U.S. central region manager for Lloyd’s America.

The partnership supports the Lloyd’s Equine Disease Quarterly, a publication dedicated to equine health and welfare, produced by the UK Department of Veterinary Science Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center.

“The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment is grateful to Lloyd’s of London for this long-standing and unique support of the veterinary science department in general since 1985, and of the Equine Disease Quarterly for 25 years,” said Dean Nancy Cox. “Because of Lloyd’s support, this publication has achieved iconic status in the international equine industry, and we are so grateful.”

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 18,000 readers in 102 countries. Available in paper and online, its articles are regularly reprinted in scientific and lay equine publications worldwide.
