Maarten F. Weber, DVM, DBR, MSc, PhD, DipECBHM, DipECVPH
"I do feel a strong affinity with our mission statement: "teaming up for animal health, in the interest of animals, their owners and society at large". In fact, my focal point has gradually shifted over the years, from an initial focus on the individual animal, through the herd and individual farmer, to a focus on the interests of the agricultural industry and society at large. At all levels, it is pivotal that we produce healthy foods from healthy animals. Thus, contributing to the control of potentially zoonotic infections is rewarding indeed."
||Maarten (M. F.) Weber joined GD Animal Health back in 1998, after having worked a number of years in a mixed but predominantly dairy practice. He was awarded a Diploma in Bovine Reproduction (Liverpool, 2000), an MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics (Utrecht, 2004) and a PhD on a thesis 'Surveillance of M. a. paratuberculosis in dairy herds' (Utrecht, 2009). Maarten is a diplomate of the European Colleges of Veterinary Public Health (subspecialty population medicine) and Bovine Health Management.
The focus of his work is on the control of bovine infectious diseases, especially paratuberculosis and salmonellosis.
