New results will contribute to better selection for sow longevity

Animal welfare in the gestation and farrowing units is highly prioritised by most sow producers. When more of your sows live longer, it will result in increased profitability for you. Moreover, increased survival is expected to improve animal welfare, as potentially underlying causes of mortality and morbidity can be reduced. DanBred’s R&D department has been working intensively to improve sow longevity for years, and there is good news… Longevity is already a part of the breeding goal for DanBred Landrace and DanBred Yorkshire. However, it is a complex trait to select for because it is very affected by the surroundings, …

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.

Can we use the sow’s temperature as a decision-making indicator for treatment?

Piglet survival continues to be one of the most focused matters in pig production, as pig producers aim for healthy pigs to ensure a sustainable economic production. To increase piglet survival, it is essential to focus on the most sensitive and focused unit for pig producers: the farrowing unit. Pig producers should pay particular attention to sow health and condition before and during the farrowing period, since the piglets’ health is affected directly by the sow. In the farrowing unit, we need to make sure that both the sow and the piglets get everything they need, i.e., free access to …

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 …
