About DanBred


DanBred is one of the world’s leading international pig breeding companies.

High-growth pig producers around the world choose DanBred for optimal and predictable business results, based on a foundation of well documented genetics and a comprehensive service solution offering.

DanBred is the first breeding company in the world to use genomic information from 100% of GGP and GP animals when calculating index. This makes the DanBred index the most modern in the world, very accurate and highly reliable.

We stand for healthy animals, innovation, transparency and knowledge sharing. In 2018 DanBred launched The Manual, a complete guide to handling DanBred gilts. The Manual is available for all, either online, or downloaded as an app.

DanBred sets long-term and balanced breeding goals, which are revised every few years to ensure that the genetic gain in DanBred Duroc, DanBred Landrace and DanBred Yorkshire delivers maximum profit, creating a sustainable high return on investment in leading production herds.

We have a world-class breeding system. More than 100 years of targeted, focused work selecting and breeding the right pigs has given the Danish pig a great advantage over its competitors.

The Danish pig breeding system has existed since the end of the 19th century. In the beginning, the purpose was to develop pig breeding which met the needs of Danish pig producers and abattoirs as well as competitive pork products for export and the domestic market.

Today, our talented geneticists focus on the well-being and conformation of the pigs – just to mention two of our ambitious goals.

DanBred P/S is owned by the Danish Agriculture and Food Council, Danish Agro and the former DanBred International A/S (now Holdingselskabet DBI A/S).
