|8-4-2014||Pastoral Breeds Health Foundation (PBHF) Update, 1/4/2014
I am very pleased to confirm that the Roslin have been granted the research funds to continue work with the PBHF into glaucoma in Border Collies - this is a substantial amount that covers us for a number of years. The information so far given by breeders and owners has given the researchers a lot more insight into the issues and we have a lot more work to do to get the samples and information needed to move this on. The PBHF is meeting at the end of this month (we hope many of the clubs will be able to send represenatives). Like any research new information comes to light and with this in mind we will need the help of owners, and breeders and the clubs. After the meeting we will be putting out information on the work of Roslin and how we will also work with the AHT research in this area - so bear with us. For now a big thanks for those that have made the time and effort to be involved.
