RCVS Specialist in Cattle Health and Production
Sara Pedersen , BSc BVetMed CertCHP DBR MRCVS, graduated from the Royal Veterinary College, London, in 2005 and has worked exclusively with farm animals ever since. Her interest in cattle mobility and lameness began early in her career and continued to grow during nearly a decade in clinical, predominantly dairy, practice.
In 2014, Sara left full-time practice in order to focus purely on this area. She now provides educational programmes and consultancy services to agri-businesses on the subject of cattle lameness; including farmers, national organisations and commercial companies. A specific area of interest is foot trimming and realising the need for a more evidence-based approach to preventive cattle foot trimming, she began a PhD on this subject with the University of Nottingham in 2017. Sara also holds the RCVS Certificate in Cattle Health and Production, the Diploma in Bovine Reproduction and is an RCVS Recognised Specialist in Cattle Health and Production.
