Andrew Sheppy. 1 April 1949 – 9 May 2017

There are many ways in which your path may have crossed with Shep.   He was probably Andrew to you if you knew him through music, family, church or the village of Congresbury.  Shep was the farmer. A man with a deep love of all things agricultural and vast knowledge of the genetics of all his rare breeds.  Poultry, sheep, cattle and pigs.

He took a huge interest in all our veterinary undergraduates, especially if they made cakes, and in life at the Vet School, especially the Langford Trust.  He loved to encourage the young and share his wisdom with all who had the sense to listen.  It was a knowledge built up from the love of books and the willingness to learn and from years of experience working with  various rare breeds including  Dexter cattle, Norfolk Horn Sheep, Oxford Sandy and Black  pigs and Burmese bantams and many more rare breed poultry.

His many friends in Congresbury have compiled a book.  The Sheppys of Congresbury.
