We are thrilled that Juan is joining Central West Equine for our breeding season. David is passionate about his own professional development and that of the clinic staff so this presents a great opportunity for David and Ben to collaborate on cases and expand their own knowledge.

It is a great opportunity for our clients to take advantage of Juan’s wealth of experience in the research and clinical fields including breeding management of mares, anovulatory disorders, embryo transfer and ovum pick-up in mares, among others.

Juan has published over 50 articles on equine reproduction in international indexed JCR journals and we are super excited to have his wealth of knowledge and experience working closely with our team for the next 6 months.

Outside of equine reproduction, Juan is a keen athlete who enjoys both road bike and mountain bike riding and swimming.  We hope we can give him the opportunity to enjoy some of the great attractions of offer in our region.
