DanBred Landrace has a high fertility and good mothering abilities, and it is known to produce large litters of robust pigs. Moreover, DanBred Landrace is a strong animal with solid legs and a high lean meat percentage.
High nursing capacity and weaning rates of own piglets
Produce large litters of vigorous piglets
Progeny are robust and have uniform growth rates
Ongoing selected for high lean meat, matching the trend for increasingly heavier finishers
Strong animals with solid legs and high longevity
Continuous improvements in genetic gain for feed conversion
Progeny are easy to handle and highly social, leading to higher animal welfare
DanBred Landrace is the result of decades of professional selection, where breeders, since the early 1970s, have focused on daily gain, feed conversion, longevity, fertility and meat quality.
DanBred’s crossbreeding programme is constantly optimised to make sure our genetic progress results in an efficient pig production worldwide. This is not only profitable for the producers it also contributes to a more sustainable production – by producing maximum output with minimum input.
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.
