The people behind Pig Signals
The Pig Signals concept was created by Roodbont Publishers, in cooperation with a group of enthousiastic experts.
Meet the Pig Signals team!
Kees Scheepens (expert author)
Kees Scheepens grew up on a farm and has worked for many years as an
international pig vet. He is also passionate about pig breeding and has a special
preference for pork with an old-fashioned flavour. After trying many breeds,
Scheepens settled on the Berkshire. ‘My five-year goal is to have as much Duke
of Berkshire pork on the shelves as there is organic pork.’ He believes in having
respect for pigs, enjoys raising them and is a pork connoisseur. Scheepens gives
Pig Signals® presentations and runs on-farm training sessions.
Jan Hulsen (expert author)
Jan Hulsen has made a career of presenting knowledge about animals and
animal husbandry in a practical fashion. He was born and raised on a traditional
mixed farm where he grew up taking care of pigs. ‘After three years in veterinary
practice, I began to focus on knowledge transfer and consulting.’ With his
company, Vetvice, Hulsen developed the Cow Signals® concept, which includes
books, lectures and workshops. Pig Signals® represents an expansion of his field of activity. This book is a tangible result of this process.
