Expertise & Research Excellence Scoops 2 Awards for Queensburg University
Academics at the Queensburg University’s School of Health and Science have been acknowledged for their exception research work and its impact in veterinary studies by leading industry journal with 2 awards.

BriefingWire.com, 10/17/2016 - Academics at the Queensburg University’s School of Health and Science have been acknowledged for their exception research work and its impact in veterinary studies by leading industry journal with 2 awards.

Veterinary Record is a peer-reviewed journal for veterinary physicians and researchers and is the journal of the British Veterinary Association.

The journal has recognized Dr. Joseph E Harper and colleagues with this year’s Veterinary Record Impact Award, and collaborators at Queensburg Research & Development Centre, for their extra-ordinary contribution for investigating foot over trimming and its side-effects in dairy cows.

The research paper, which has crossed 1,500 downloads and has been accessed by vet practitioners around the world, particularly in US, UK and Australia (New Zealand), set the standards for claw lengths for routine foot trimming for dairy farmers.

The researchers found that 96% of the dairy cows they have examined, a minimum claw length that is recommended is 90mm. For centuries, the normal claw length for trimming has been 60mm and have been over trimmed.

Over trimming causes hurts the cows and leads to susceptible claw horn lesions among them. The objective that the minimum claw length should be at least 90mm for any adult dairy cow is to relief them from this discomfort and also double dairy productions.

Reviewers praised the research for its practical impact and ‘far reaching implications for welfare and production of dairy industry’. The other Veterinary editorial confirms that the findings from this research could help farmers, vets practitioners and professional claw trimmers not only manage but also prevent lameness in adult dairy cows that normally caused by over trimming otherwise.

Queensburg have been recognized as the very first recipient of a new award from the journal. The Veterinary Record Evidence Award subjects to recognize exceptional contributions to the development of evidence-based veterinary medicine and its applications in practice for positive change. The School of Health & Sciences at Queensburg University have also recognized its Centre for Evidence-based Veterinary Medicine for this achievement for building a strong network beyond the university setting. In particular, it highlighted the on-going research and development offered by the Centre to Vet Practitioners. The journals reviewed the research and published it online to make it accessible to Vet practitioners worldwide.
