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.

From 1996 to 2006 he served as lecturer and clinical instructor in the UK for the British Equine Veterinary Association. 

Dr. Lofstedt’s professional interests include veterinary information technology, virtual reality, digital image manipulation & special illustration techniques.
