Eamon Watson’s extensive experience will be invaluable to NML.

Following practical experience in dairy farming and studies at Sparsholt College in Hampshire, he studied veterinary science at the University of Liverpool.

Starting his veterinary career in a mixed practice and then a specialist farm animal practice in Somerset, he became a veterinary investigation officer in Winchester where he carried out postmortem examination and disease investigation of farm livestock on behalf of private vets.

Dr Watson has a master’s degree in the control of infectious diseases in animals and has recently worked at the Animal and Plant Health Agency on antimicrobial resistance in dairy herds, new and emerging disease surveillance and bovine TB.

He joins NML as part of the veterinary team that offers technical support to the company’s health and disease testing services. His experience will be particularly valuable on laboratory diagnostics and herd health, including Johne’s and BVD control, milk hygiene and testing for mastitis pathogens.
