NATIONAL PRIZE FOR ANIMAL MEDICINES STUDENT

 

A student at the Lincolnshire School of Agriculture has won second prize in a national animal medicines training competition.

 

Catherine Ryles, who works at the Worksop branch of the farmersí co-operative CWG Ltd, was named top student on the Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority course run by the school.

 

She also produced the best project on the University of Lincoln course and was put forward for consideration for a national award sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health.

 

Catherine came second in the national competition and received a cheque for £200 at an awards evening last week.

 

Her prize was presented by Simon Fleet of Pfizer Animal Health at the conference dinner of the Animal Health Distributors Association (AHDA) at the Imperial Hotel in Blackpool.

 

The Lincolnshire School of Agriculture, which transferred to the University of Lincoln from De Montfort University last year, runs the Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority course in the spring and autumn each year.
