UK-VET Livestock

Livestock was launched in 1995 and is the only dedicated, peer-reviewed veterinary livestock journal that covers cattle, sheep, pigs and camelids. Of particular interest to livestock practitioners are its clinical updates and reviews. In addition, its clinical forums invite a panel to discuss a timely and often controversial subject area of interest to livestock vets, and its Cattle Review pages look at the latest published research.

Livestock is authoritative and accessible and offers a comprehensive resource for veterinary practitioners caring for large farmyard animals. Livestock is a ‘must-read’ publication for livestock practitioners wanting to keep up-to-date with clinical developments that enhance their practice. Livestock provides large animal vets with flexible CPD, which can be carried out at a time to suit them.

Boehringer Ingelheim

Improving the health and quality of life of patients is our goal at the research-driven pharmaceutical company, Boehringer Ingelheim. Family-owned since it was established in 1885, Boehringer Ingelheim is one of the pharmaceutical industry’s top 20 companies.

In animal health, Boehringer Ingelheim stands for advanced prevention. Our animal health business is now the second largest in the world, with more than 200 products for dogs, cats, horses, pigs, cattle and poultry.

Boehringer Ingelheim


Boehringer Ingelheim’s global initiative ‘Cattle First’ fosters health, well-being, innovation and sustainability on cattle farms around the world.

As the United Nations estimates the world population will reach 9.8 billion in 2050, the debate on sustainable ways to feed so many humans growths in importance. The latest numbers show that the demand for animal protein will rise 70 percent, which means an urgent need to find solutions capable of offering high-quality products to ensure food security while also protecting the environment.

That is a fundamental concern of Boehringer Ingelheim. As the year begins, the company is launching a new global initiative to foster animal health and welfare on cattle farms in order to make its contribution. Cattle First supports a direct exchange between farmers, and veterinarians and Boehringer Ingelheim to enhance experience, harnessing the most innovative products and services to take care of tomorrow’s cattle farming, today. The project includes three pillars: health & well-being, innovation and sustainability.
