DanBred Duroc makes your business highly competitive, giving you more pork for less costs!

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.

7 Facts

Robust & uniform

Progenies are robust and have uniform growth rates from birth to slaughter

High survival rates

Produce litters with high survival rates and vigorous piglets

Most profitable

The world’s most profitable and environmentally efficient terminal boar line

High lean meat percentage

Ongoing selection for high lean meat percentage, matching the trend for increasingly heavier finishers

Easy to handle

Progeny are easy to handle and highly social, leading to higher animal welfare

Super daily gain

Progenies have superior daily gain from birth to slaughter and the best feed efficiency

Exceptional meat quality

Finisher carcasses have exceptional meat quality: pH, colour and IMF


DanBred Duroc originates from North America, but the race was imported to Denmark in the 1970s.

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.

When using Danbred Duroc as the terminal sire, our customers not only get more pork for less costs but in addition high class pork quality that is in high demand around the world.

Efficient genetics, like DanBred Duroc is not only profitable for the producer, but also makes major contribution to reducing carbon footprint from pork production.

DanBred Duroc D(LY) progeny are:


DanBred D(LY) finishers have superior meat quality (90 kg) as evidenced by:

2 %

High content of intramascular fat


High level of pH-24-96 h post mortem

Bonus information:

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 D(LY) finishers have excellent performance results (30-100 kg) as evidenced by:

gram daily gain

World-class growth rates

kg feed / kg gain

Superior feed conversion


Eminent lean meat percentage


That is evident from SEGES Innovation’s industry analysis from 2020 (note no. 2136). These results are an average of the top 5 DanBred herds in the analysis.

superior Performance Results

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.

In total, around 100,000 DanBred breeding animals are performance and genomic tested.
