"Successful pig management is about doing the right thing at the right time"


31,60 €

Pigs are constantly giving out signals about their health, well-being, and performance. The art is to perceive these signals and to use them to monitor and improve the nutrition, care and housing of your animals.

Veterinary surgeons and pig enthusiasts Jan Hulsen and Kees Scheepens wrote Pig Signals based on their expertise and extensive experience with farmers and their pigs. They created this richly-illustrated book as an ideal practical guide and essential reference book.


It is important not to jump to conclusions, but to keep asking yourself three questions:

  • What do I see?
  • Why has this happened? 
  • What does this mean?


For example, why is your saw defecating in a laying area ? How did your piglet get that dry cough ? Is the agression shown by your grosser-finishing pigs due to a struggle for dominance or a cold draught ?


Using the knowledge from this book, you can take focused measures ans improve your farm results. The Pigs Signals Diamond will help you achieve this.
