About Barbara

Dr. Barbara Spandern looks back at many years of practical experience in veterinary medicine, animal breeding and people management. After her early start at the Humane Society in San Mateo, California she moved to Berlin to study veterinary medicine. Parallel to running her own rural mixed veterinary clinic in Northern Germany she completed her PhD thesis on the effect of stress on various hormone parameters and the fertility of breeding bulls ( -> publication abstract). A topic that should remain in the very core of her professional activities.

Today Dr. Spandern services farmers, breeders and organisations across Europe sharing her insight in animal health, breeding strategy and farm management. She is recognised as a top rated speaker and lecturer at various workshops and conferences in matters of animal welfare and gentle stockmanship.

Based on her specific insights Dr. Barbara Spandern was recognised by the German Association of Industry Expert, BVfS as legal expert witness for animal transportation and husbandry.
