Instructor Bio

Wes has been involved in the agriculture industry his whole life, raised on a farm and ranch on the Gulf Coast of Texas he was introduced to the importance of hard work and dedication from an early age. He credits his success to his supportive wife Maddi and his three wonderful children Boothe, Lexi and Lukas. It is always a blessing to get back home after being on the road working or teaching. Wes and Maddi own and operate an IVF company and specialize in Brahman and Bucking Stock Genetics.

Wes attended Texas A&M University, where he received a bachelor’s degree in animal science. Graduate research and expertise include timed AI in super-ovulated bovine donors, stallion semen freezing and oocyte collection in mares. He interned in Mississippi where he met and was able to study under Dr. Peter Elsden, the founder of the International Embryo Technology School. Wes has been involved in performing, training, and teaching of bovine embryo transfer for over 15 years. Over the last few years he has focused on OPU and IVF in cattle and currently implementing that into the school.

“My focus is on being able to help students develop the techniques and skills needed to become successful in the embryo transfer industry. Dr. Elsden was a mentor throughout my career in animal reproduction and lessons learned still influence my business today. Being able to continue the legacy of my mentor in teaching is a great honor.”
