DanBred Duroc is used as the terminal sire in the DanBred cross-breeding program, where the performance is excellent in combination with the DanBred Hybrid.
DanBred Duroc produces large litters as well as fast growing finisher pigs with low feed conversion ratio and a high lean meat percentage. As an extra benefit DanBred Duroc produces carcasses with an excellent meat quality.
Progeny are robust and have uniform growth rates from birth to slaughter
Produce litters with high survival rates and vigorous piglets
The world’s most profitable and environmentally efficient terminal boar line
Ongoing selected for high lean meat, matching the trend for increasingly heavier finishers
Progeny are easy to handle and highly social, leading to higher animal welfare
Progeny have superior daily gain from birth to slaughter and the best feed efficiency
Finisher carcasses have exceptional meat quality: pH, color and IMF
Through decades of professional selection, the breed has been genetically improved particularly in regard to meat percentage and slaughter loss. The DanBred Duroc is the most competitive terminal sire, and below you will find just a few of the most important and documented reasons why.
Efficient genetics, like DanBred Duroc is not only profitable for the producer, but also makes major contribution to reducing carbon footprint from pork production.
Research indicates that since the RN and Halothane genes have been removed from the DanBred breeds decades ago, pH no longer influences production yield, which is why pH is no longer part of the DanBred breeding goals.
DanBred carries out performance testing of the future AI boars both at the DanBred boar testing station Bøgildgård, and in DanBred’s nucleus herds, and we openly share this updated data every year. With more than 30 years of experience collecting data on boar production traits and feed efficiency, DanBred can select the best genes, and only the highest performing boars with optimum index are sent to AI, where they father the pigs of the future.
