Congratulations Dr. Robert Lofstedt 
2019 Theriogenologist of the Year 

Dr. Rob Lofstedt graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1973 and spent a couple of years in private practice and industry. With stop-offs at the Western College of Vet Med, Iowa State and Tufts University, he was awarded an MS in Reproductive Endocrinology, became board certified in Theriogenology and entered academia. His broad interest in reproduction and education has been reflected by memberships in the American Society of Animal Science, Society for the Study of Reproduction, Consortium of North American Veterinary Interactive New Concept Education (CONVINCE), American Association of Bovine Practitioners, Society for Theriogenology and of course, the American College of Theriogenologists. He has served as a consultant for companies, as an expert witness for the AVMA and as a consultant to the National Geographic Society. In the last 32 years, he has served as a professor and adjunct professor of Theriogenology at the Atlantic Veterinary College. He has a long-standing association with the ACT, once an examiner for ACT board certification and now, as an emeritus member of the ACT. Dr. Lofstedt also served on the veterinary council of his home province and as its president from 1997 to 1998. He was recently elected a life member of the PEIVMA.

The American College of Theriogenologists (ACT) is the AVMA-recognized veterinary specialty organization™ for certification of Theriogenologists. The ACT undergoes a comprehensive evaluation by the American Board of Veterinary Specialties (ABVS), a committee of the American Veterinary Medical Association, every three years to ensure that we are maintaining the required standards for our certification process.

Mission Statement

The mission of the ACT is to promote animal well-being, reproductive health, responsible breeding and genetic practices, and efficient management of breeding-age animals in agriculture, veterinary practice, zoos, preserves, and ecosystems. In particular, the ACT envisions development of focus areas in theriogenology to incorporate the following in theriogenology/reproductive medicine:

1. Population control for domestic and non-domestic animals including feral animals, free-ranging and captive wildlife.

2. Genomics in livestock and companion animal practice.
