Roddy is a partner in a veterinary practice in Castle Douglas. Since qualifying from Glasgow Vet School in 1990 he has been involved in mixed, mainly farm animal practice. His particular interests are in cattle fertility and nutrition. He has been a member of The Moredun Foundation since student days and passionately believes in Moredun’s ethos of ‘Prevention is better than cure’. Away from work, Roddy is keen hillwalker and member of the local mountain rescue team where he is very keen to champion the role of modern farming practices and their positive impact on the rural economy and landscape to the less initiated!
