The Drost Project Visual Guides began as a collection of images compiled by Maarten Drost over a period of 30-plus years as a theriogenologist on the faculties of the University of California Davis and the University of Florida, as well as Utrecht University in The Netherlands and Colorado State University. The purpose of the Drost Project is to share these visual images with students and colleagues and other professionals around the globe.

The Drost Project is now hosted at

Initially the Guide focused on bovine reproduction. Subsequently, the guides for bubaline (water buffalo) reproduction, equine (horse) reproduction, ovine (sheep) reproduction, porcine (pig) reproduction and caprine (goat) reproduction have been added to the site. The Drost Project Visual Guides are currently being expanded to include other species, with the canine and feline guides actively being developed

Halfway completed is the new Spanish translation of the Drost Project Visual Guide to Bovine Reproduction. Spanish translation of the Drost Project Visual Guide to Equine Reproduction will begin soon.

Visit the site to find out how you can use the visual guides for educating yourself and your employees. The Web site also includes more complete information about other projects and partnership opportunities.
