Dr. Hubner graduated from the University of Illinois in 2005 and entered private practice. His time in private practice primarily focused on dairy medicine with some time dedicated to beef cow/calf practice. Dr. Hubner spent a total of 13 years in private practice with 8 of those years spent as a practice owner. In 2018 he returned to the University of Illinois to complete a PhD focused on the interaction between metabolism and reproduction of the lactating dairy cow. He started at Purdue in the fall of 2021 after completing his PhD and a board certification in the College of Veterinary Practitioners (dairy practice). Dr. Hubner's clinical focus will be the expansion of the Purdue ambulatory section into a greater number of Indiana dairy farms, while his research will continue to focus on improving health and reproduction in the lactating dairy cow.
