PROF. MATTHAEUS STOEBER PASSED AWAY ON FEBRUARY 2018

The World Association for Buiatrics mourns the loss of Prof. Matthäus Stöber, founding member in 1962, Secretary General from 1976 to 1986, and finally Honorary Secretary of the Association. Matthäus Stöber was one of the most famous buiatricians in the world. After having been assistant to Prof. Gustav Rosenberger in the Clinic for Cattle at the Veterinary School of Hannover (Germany), he became director of the same Clinic. Dr. Peter Heimberg, member of the Executive Committee (EXCO) represented the WAB at the funeral.
