High-performance breeding pigs with the highest health status
Danish Pig Genetics P/S offers the only breeding program completely free from PRRS
Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome affects your economical results in sow production and slaughterpig production.
It is a disease generally transmitted between animals, but even though the risk of transmission through semen is lower, we never risk it.
This is why our partners work really hard on maintaining PRRS free farms, regarding both the animals you purchase from us, and the boars we select and send to our AI Station partners.
We take good care of our animals
As far as we are concerned, pig farms have always been run by animal-lovers, dedicated to the well-being of the animals. Pigs have their individual needs, and farmers must take good care of their physical and mental health.
This is why we make sure that our pigs have enough space, that they have toys to play with, that they are not stressed and that they thrive growing up with other pigs the same age.
We work with professional veterinarian companies, to provide the safest environment for our animals; we continuously conduct tests and we vaccinate to ensure they are in top-form before being delivered to our customers.
In addition, we follow-up on the pigs’ diet, as it changes when they grow. So, we work with the best feeding experts who recommend the right feed in the right quantities.
Breeders guarantees the best from our suppliers in terms of production potential, but also in terms of healthy breeding animals and semen from healthy boars.
In Denmark, SPF-Sund (part of Danish Agriculture and Food Council) controls and develops the SPF-System, and declares the health status in all pig herds.

Mycoplasma hyopneumonia, Actinobacillus pleuropneumonia, Atrophic rhinitis, Swine dysentery, PRRS, Mange and Lice.
