At DanBred, we offer a comprehensive range of service solutions that help our customers utilise the full potential of our products – but are the results as good as claimed?
See for yourself.
A study of almost 300 DanBred sow herds showed that DanBred sows can produce more piglets (41 weaned per sow per year) that weigh 6.6 kg at weaning. So, you get more piglets with a high weaning weight, which means more kg in total for you as a pig producer.
The number of teats is not crucial, but the total milk capacity is – and more teats do not necessarily mean a higher milk capacity. A recent trial by the Danish Agriculture & Food Council, Pig, concluded that the number of functional teats at farrowing had no significant influence – neither on the number of pigs weaned per weaning nor on the weight of the litter.
With a daily gain of 1,087 g/day and a feed conversion ratio of 2.4 feed/kg gain, DanBred D(LY) finishers have superior feed efficiency. A higher feed efficiency results in lower costs per finisher and a higher total profit for you.
The high litter size of DanBred animals reflects positively on your total economy. That is why other genetic companies are working towards big litters as well. At DanBred, we have already achieved those big litter sizes, which means you can learn how to manage big litters from the beginning.
Do you know if you gain from the breeding progress? You do when using DanBred genetics. Our DanBred Duroc has superior performance in both nucleus and production herds.
- DanBred Duroc daily gain in nucleus herds = 1,329 g/day (30 kg – slaughter).
- DanBred Duroc daily gain = 1,286 g/day (30 kg – slaughter) and feed conversion ratio = 1.84 kg feed/kg gain (30 kg – slaughter) at the testing station Bøgildgård.
- DanBred finishers in commercial production herds achieve daily gain = 1,087 g/day (30 kg – slaughter) and feed conversion ratio = 2.4 kg feed/kg gain (30 kg – slaughter).
