AWF funds research projects as part of our mission to use veterinary knowledge to improve the welfare of animals.
Through our Norman Hayward Fund we are able to support research into the disease and welfare of horses, cattle and sheep.
The fund was set up from a generous legacy and has awarded over £1 million to research projects in the UK. In the last 10 years we’ve funded 20 research projects covering areas such as lameness, equine grass sickness, liver fluke in horses and contagious ovine digital dermatitis. The awards have ranged in value from £12,000 – £200,000.
