A solid foundation of more than 100 years’ experience combined with state-of-the-art technologies and the world’s leading genetics experts are the ingredients that create one of the world’s best breeding programmes.

The biological complexity of the breeding goals makes it necessary to balance the traits against each other to secure optimal breeding. Therefore, we have focused on a balanced breeding program by incorporating number of breeding goal traits from efficiency, growth, robustness, reproduction, mothering ability and carcass quality categories.

These focus points are chosen because the combination of them results in a more sustainable breeding with profit for the consumers, less environmental pollution, and increased animal welfare.

DGENES is a dynamic system equipped with state-of-the-art genetics technologies that can analyse the data through genetic approaches to deliver accurate breeding values. The breeding goal is delivered by Danish Genetics’ unique bio-economic model, that weighs the traits under selection by the economic value of each trait to secure the highest production profit for the pork producers along the value chain.
