Dr. Bill McGuire comes to us from Arkansas State University where he was an instructor in Animal Science,” said Becky Thomas. “Not only does he have a PHD in Veterinary and Biomedical Sciences and a Masters in Reproductive Physiology, he is a very skilled horseman. We are very lucky and happy to have him on the team along side Farm Manager Teri Brown.”
Dr. McGuire began at Cloud County Community College in Concordia, Kansas where he taught Animal Science classes, Anatomy and Physiology, and implemented as well as instructed the college’s equine program. He also started the college’s rodeo team, equestrian team, and coached the horse judging team to victories in national contests. After 15 years in this position, Dr. McGuire accepted a job with New Mexico State University and served as a Northern New Mexico Horse Specialist among many other roles. He established and directed the Thoroughbred breeding program at Arkansas State University where his students acquired hands on experience in foaling, breeding, and management.
“I am very excited to be working with such a great team of individuals at such a first class farm,” said Dr. McGuire, “While I will definitely miss my students, the opportunities for them to complete internships at Sequel will be an unequaled learning experience.”
