Can we use the pig’s history to increase future daily gain?

Most producers of finisher pigs aim to achieve pigs with high daily gain, where all pigs raised in the same section can be sent to slaughter at the same time (or at least within the shortest period possible). However, this is not simple to achieve; pigs do not always grow at the same rate, as different variables can have huge impact on the daily gain. Increased knowledge of the individual pig’s history may help us predict the future daily gain and exactly how long it will take for the pig to reach the desired slaughter weight. This will help you as a pig producer utilise your stables’ maximum capacity and achieve the full potential of your animals.

Recent research: Survival until slaughter can be improved through breeding

Increased survival until slaughter has economic significance for you as a pig producer as well as social significance for animal health and welfare in the pig production in general. From a breeding perspective, survival is a complex trait, but research shows that it is possible to improve survival until slaughter through breeding.   A current research project investigates how genetics influence survival from birth until slaughter. The aim of the project is to determine whether we can achieve breeding progress for survival until slaughter – and whether there is a genetic correlation between survival until slaughter and the other traits …

DanBred reinforces to increase piglet survival

In DanBred, we are constantly working on how we can improve piglet survival while maintaining the economic progress for pig producers all around the world. Now, the Danish Pig Research Centre, SEGES, invests even more in securing a strong and competitive pig production by putting extra resources into optimising the breeding goal for LP5.   Since 2005, the piglet survival in breeding and multiplication herds has increased considerably. Simultaneously, slaughter pig producers have seen a striking improvement in the traits for their DanBred slaughter pigs, which has given them an economical advantage. However, this has created an unfavourable connection between …

Maximising genetic gain while controlling inbreeding

Sustainable breeding strikes a balance between realising the genetic gain and reducing the harmful effects of inbreeding. As selection becomes more intense, and only the very best animals are selected as parents of the next generation, breeding animals will become more related and thus more inbred. DanBred uses the state-of-the-art method of selection – optimum-contribution selection – to maximise genetic gain while controlling the rate of inbreeding.   In DanBred, we are highly effective at using genetic selection to realise the genetic gain and increase the genetic potential of pigs – in order to deliver high performance results for your …
