On behalf of Nicolas Eterradossi, President of WVPA

It is with profound sadness that we were informed on May 12, of the passing of our friend, colleague, Senior Vice President of WVPA, and its immediate former President, Dr Nigel Horrox.

We have appreciated Nigel’s input, insights, energy, and commitment to WVPA over many years, as well as his courage in his fight against disease. We keep in mind, appreciate, and are grateful for everything Nigel did for the development and recognition of WVPA in the poultry community worldwide.

We express our most sincere and deepest condolences to his loved ones and close relations.
