Dr Michael P Reichel
Dr REICHEL initially graduated from the Free University Berlin in Germany with a degree in veterinary medicine, then pursued a professional career predominantly in the Southern Hemisphere, in New Zealand, the Falkland Islands and then Australia.

Dr Reichel has extensively published on abortifacients of cattle, Neospora caninum and Bovine Viral Diarrhoea in particular, and his citations place him in the top 1% of scientists in veterinary medicine according to Stanford University.
