Vincent ter Beek

Editor of Pig Progress / Topic: Pigs around the world

Vincent ter Beek has been working for Pig Progress since 2005 and he became editor of the magazine and website two years later. Before joining Reed Business Information, he worked as a journalist at a Dutch newspaper and as a college teacher.

He graduated from Groningen University in 2001, holds an MA in history and journalism and he followed a post-graduate journalism course in the United Kingdom.

Being an agricultural ‘immigrant’, he quickly learnt his way in the pig industry. Still, he is able to observe the pig industry from a different angle – and will not hesitate to do so regularly.
