Daniel Zalduendo


Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and Master in Business Administration and Communication . With a family tradition of hoof trimmers, my first contact with the dairy cattle industry started 20 years ago as an assistant of a hoof trimmer. 

After finishing my veterinary studies I was for 6 years working in the north-east of Spain as an advisor to dairy farms, cooperatives, industries and feed companies in the areas of Milk Quality, Nutrition and General Management.

I joined HIPRA, an animal health company in 2012. I worked as Brand Manager, coordinating HIPRA’s Mastitis Unit, providing mastitis vaccines and services to more than 50 countries. This has allowed me to understand the different markets, to deliver lectures and to create collaborative links in the field of disease prevention all around the globe.

I joined the ANKA team in July 2019 as  Sales and Veterinary Director. I want to contribute with my international experience and marketing expertise to make ANKA a global reference in hoof health. We maintain the innovation spirit in all our actions and we consider ourselves as a family company with global vocation. ANKA group trims 70,000 cows/year. It provides an opportunity to test our crushes and facilitates feedback in order to improve.

 In addition to my interest in dairy cattle, I have several hobbies including running in the forests and mountains behind my home and reading children’s books to my sons.
