Mauricio was born in Mexico City, Mexico. He obtained his veterinarian degree from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), Ciudad Universitaria, in 2018. Just a few weeks ago he obtained a Master’s Degree in Veterinary Medicine and Zootechnics in the same university.
Mauricio entered the profession inspired by his uncle who is a swine veterinarian in central Mexico. His passion for pigs grew visiting pig farms with his uncle. During his Master program he visited production systems, presented at national meetings and enrolled in several production and population medicine courses.
Mauricio is the first participant of Pipestone’s “Professional talent recruitment and development program” aiming to identify and train talented individuals to support pork producers in Mexico. He will be part of our team as a trainee veterinarian.
