Welcome to the British Veterinary Poultry Association

Introduction to the BVPA

The British Veterinary Poultry Association (BVPA) was founded in 1956 and is an active non-territorial division of the British Veterinary Association. Its membership is open to poultry veterinarians and scientists working with poultry. BVPA celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2006.

The objective of the BVPA is to further the knowledge of its members, who are drawn from academia, research, commerce and practice, by holding educational and technical meetings. This is achieved by holding three meetings (winter, spring and summer) a year.

The BVPA was a founding member of the World Veterinary Poultry Association for whom it hosted successful conferences in Cambridge (1962) and Brighton (1989) and for whom it has provided various officers over the years.

The BVPA is a thriving Association with good attendances at its meetings and a great camaraderie among its members.
