Genetics

Avlscenter Trekanten Breeding (ACT Breeding) operates with both nucleus and multiplier herds. At ACT Breeding, Danish Yorkshire and Danish Duroc are bred in collaboration with Danish Genetics. Danish Genetics´s business partner in genetics, Scotland-based Roslin Technologies, are world leaders in animal breeding and genetics. Together they have designed a breeding program that delivers excellent progress on several parameters, e.g., sow prolificacy, grower-finisher performance, and meat quality. In other words, both sow farms with piglet production and farms with grower finishers achieve a very high genetic level if they purchase animals from ACT Breeding. The latest new breeding goal for the sows´ mothering ability will reduce mortality among suckling piglets and give larger and more viable piglets at weaning.

Innovative breeding facilitates productivity

Profound knowledgeof pig breeding and genetics and commitment is a vital prerequisite for managing a breeding herd successfully. Pig breeding is very time-consuming due to many meticulous records. We are delighted when we experience that our daily efforts combined with our genetics know-how pay off consistent progress in pig productivity. 

Trouble-free daily management

Our Yorkshire sows are very calm and have a docile temperament. When we add our gentle daily management routines, our customers experience that our gilts are very easy to handle. We have a comprehensive approach to pig breeding and do not only consider the individual gilt index. When we ship breeding pigs to our customers, we select animals from as many families as possible to eliminate the risk of inbreeding.

If you are looking for Danish Landrace pigs, we can also handle these inquiries. We have a perfect corporation with Landrace nucleus herds with animals of excellent quality.
