Juan C. Samper, DVM, MS, PhD, DACT
Dr. Samper graduated from veterinary school in 1982 and after three years of large animal practice in Colombia, he joined the theriogenology graduate program at the University of Minnesota. During his residency at Minnesota, he earned a Masters and a PhD degree in Theriogenology. His research work focused primarily on semen cryopreservation and artificial insemination of horses. Dr. Samper worked for a couple of breeding seasons at the Swedish National Stud and in 1990 became a board-certified theriogenologist. In 1990 he joined the Faculty at the Ontario Veterinary College and after three years of academia he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia where he started JCS Veterinary Reproductive Services, his own practice. The practice comprised about 65% racehorses TB's and STB's and 35% other breeds including sport horses. During his time in British Columbia, Juan served as a first opinion and referral center for the Pacific Northwest. Activities during the breeding season included foaling and breeding management, artificial insemination with fresh, shipped cooled and frozen semen and embryo transfer. Dr. Samper has lectured and consulted extensively for several breeding farms in North and South America as well as in Europe. Dr. Samper is an associate professor at Kansas State University coordinating the equine reproduction program of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Juan has published extensively in refereed journals and has authored several book chapters on artificial insemination and stallion physiology. Most recently he published his book "Equine Breeding Management and Artificial Insemination"
