The Order of Australia was established by Her Majesty The Queen in 1975 as an "Australian society of honor for the purpose of recognition to Australian citizens and other persons for their achievement or for meritorious service." Dr. McKinnon received this as recognition for his more than 40 years of service in the veterinary science industry but particularly for his work in the area of equine reproduction.

Dr. McKinnon graduated from Melbourne University in 1978. After a short term in the private sector, he went on to the Ontario Veterinary College Guelph, Ontario, Canada to work and study veterinary medicine. He then traveled to Colorado State University (CSU) where he first served as an Assistant and then as an Associate Professor in Equine Reproduction and Field Service. While at CSU, Dr. McKinnon had the opportunity to work with Dr. Ed Squires, Dr. Jim Voss and Dr. Bill Pickett. Each of them was instrumental in his development in and knowledge of equine reproduction.

In 1988, Dr. McKinnon traveled back to Australia where he and fellow veterinarian, Dr. Jim Vasey, started Goulburn Valley Equine Hospital. He also served as editor for the 1st and 2nd editions of “Equine Reproduction”. Dr. McKinnon is a founding partner of SBS Australasia along with Jim Vasey, Ed Squires and Paul Loomis in 2002.
