“I see it as a mission to eliminate IBR and BVD from the cattle sector in The Netherlands, and in Europe in the future. GD offers IBR and BVD programmes that are very cost efficient and provides expert veterinary technical support to livestock farmers to do so.” Frederik Waldeck


Frederik was born on June 17th, 1977 in The Hague, The Netherlands. He grew up in different countries of the world: Soviet Union, Thailand, Egypt, Belgium, United States of America and The Netherlands.

He studied Veterinary Medicine at Utrecht University and graduated in 2004. In the last phase of his studies he worked at Intervet (veterinary pharmaceutical company) in France for a year as a researcher. After graduation he worked for 10 years in large animal practices in Holland, mostly dairy cattle. His specific interests were fertility, infectious diseases, practice management and contract research & field trials for pharmaceutical companies. He was also affiliated for more than five years with the Department of Farm Animal Health, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University, were he was a practical lecturer for students in their last phase of their studies.
Since 2014 he works at GD Animal Health (now Royal GD) in Deventer with exclusive focus on the bovine infectious diseases IBR (Infectious Bovine Rhinotracheïtis) and BVD (Bovine Viral Diarrhea).
