Congratulations go to Professor Stanley H Done, D Vet Med, BA, PhD, Dipl ECVP, Dipl ECPHM, FRCVS who has been awarded the 2005 David Black Award.

It is very rare for a veterinarian to be honoured with this prestigious award for his dedication and service to the British Pig Industry by the British Pig Executive.

We are delighted that a member and former President of the Pig Veterinary Society, has achieved this recognition, which we feel is very much deserved.
