With Dr. Jonathon Pycock B.Vet.Med., Ph.D., D.E.S.M, MRCVS lecturing, this is a rare chance to have access to an internationally recognised expert in equine reproduction and pose YOUR questions.

Dr Pycock was a graduate of the Royal Veterinary College, University of London, 1983 from where he also obtained his PhD in 1988 for his thesis on “Breeding Problems In The Mare”.  He was then in private equine practice for six years, working in the UK during the breeding season before heading to the southern hemisphere for the breeding season ‘down under’.

In 1994 he took a position as Associate Professor of Equine Reproduction at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.  Whilst there he developed a special interest in artificial insemination with both chilled and frozen semen and assisted reproductive techniques such as embryo transfer and IVF.
He was awarded his Diploma in Equine Stud Medicine in 1994 and in 1995 became an RCVS recognised specialist in Equine Reproduction.  He returned to the UK in January 1997 to set up Equine Reproductive Services, a first opinion and referral private equine veterinary practice based in Yorkshire.

He has published many papers and book chapters on a variety of equine reproductive topics and edited the book “Equine Reproduction and Stud Medicine”.  He has lectured at meetings and given courses all over the world to both veterinary surgeons and breeders.  He has been Chairman of the AI Committee of the British Equine Veterinary Association.
