Nigel Lodge BVM&S MRCVS
Nigel Lodge was brought up in Scotland and graduated from Edinburgh. He has gradually moved south and is now based near Cambridge.
After 2 years in mixed practices, Nigel decided to specialise and spent 15 years in the poultry industry (with a primary breeder and as a partner in a major UK practice). He then broadened his experience to pigs and for the past 16 years has specialised in pig production via the pharmaceutical industry. He is currently National Veterinary Manager for pigs with Zoetis and has been involved with various industry societies over the years.
Nigel has always had a keen interest in animal welfare – very relevant to his current focus on Improvac and its potential for improving both welfare and meat quality in UK pig production.
Nigel enjoys sailing and golf but can see those activities taking a back seat when his first grandchild arrives this year.
