Some of our expert nutritionists (and blog article contributors) include:
Daniel Goussac is the Director of Black Swan Nutrition, an animal nutrition consulting firm that consults to various feed mills and additive companies across both WA and Australia wide. He has been involved in the animal nutrition and feed industry for the last 34 years.
After graduating from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Animal Nutrition and Oceanography, Daniel worked for an Israeli vitamins-minerals supplier for ten years; three of which he was the chief nutritionist.
Since moving to Australia, he worked for twenty years as a nutritionist within a WA feed company, Wesfeeds. He specialised in poultry and pig feeds as well as making all types of feeds (Ruminants and Equine). He established Black Swan Nutrition in 2012.
Dr Brad Hampton
Brad Hampton is an Equine Veterinary Surgeon and partner in Advanced Feeds, a stockfeed vitamin and mineral supplier. Brad is one of the most respected nutritional veterinarians in WA; he was a foundation Veterinary Science graduate in 1979 and has spent a number of decades working in animal nutrition and physiology. He has a particular interest in equine, having spent a lot of time working on and managing racing and breeding properties.
Advanced Feeds was established nearly three decades ago, and now provides top quality supplements both locally and to an extensive export market. On top of blending premixes for sheep and cattle, Advanced Feeds also manufacture a high quality range of equine nutrition supplements. They are 100% WA owned and operated, with all the principles closely involved in the horse industry.
Adrian Baker is the owner of RAW Animal Health. He graduated as a veterinarian in 1980 and spent the next eight years in rural mixed practice, including two years working on projects in Oman and Saudi Arabia.
On his return from the Middle East, he spent seven years as company vet for Kuwait Livestock, the largest of the live sheep exporters. He subsequently moved to consulting, providing advice to feed millers and their customers. He has also recently returned to the live export trade, accompanying consignments of sheep and cattle to The Gulf.
Dr Kathy Klien
Born in California, educated at the University of California and based in Western Australia for 30 years, Dr Klein was the first overseas intern/resident at the Murdoch University School of Veterinary Medicine and the first female equine veterinary specialist in the state. She launched WA’s first wholly independent mobile equine veterinary practice in 1990.
Kathy set the benchmark for mobile practice, and continues to be a leading equine veterinary practitioner as well as a consultant and lecturer to Murdoch University School of Veterinary Medicine. Kathy pursues through her global connections in equine surgery, medicine, and rehabilitation to access and provide the latest in veterinary technology, imaging and diagnostics for the racing and performance horse community.
Kathy’s appointments to the Animal Ethics Committee, University of Western Australia (2013-present) and to the Board of the Western Australian Horse Council (2005-present) embody her ongoing commitment to the welfare of the horse and the ethical issues and challenges surrounding medical science, technology and teaching.
