Who are we, and what are we about?

More than 100 years’ experience with professional pig breeding combined with world-class genetics expertise. This is the recipe for Danish Genetics – a new strong player in the global pig breeding market. Behind Danish Genetics are 25 of Denmark’s most experienced breeders, vendors and multiplication specialists.

The world is changing, and so are we. With Danish Genetics we have created a new constellation based on the needs of the market. That is why we have a new name, but our many years of solid experience remain the same. Professional knowledge and pride in what we do constitute the foundation for our work, but our outlook is commercial and customer-focused.

New name, same experience

Our name is new, but our experience is solid and long-standing. We have all been in the business for many years, and we have now come together under the name Danish Genetics. Times are changing, and the same applies to the needs of our customers. That is why we have reviewed our entire approach to the business, and we are determined to do things differently and better.

We are taking pig breeding to the next level

Denmark has a long-standing history of pig breeding, research and work with genetics. However, old traditions and practices do not mean you cannot change. The world is changing, and so are we.

We use our experience and innovative thinking to create world-class breeding programmes that raise the level of pig breeding world-wide.

Our strong genetics programme, which is based on more than 100 years of research and development, is the foundation for our work. We combine this with state-of-the-art research and the world’s leading experts in technology. This is how we take pig genetics and pig breeding to a new level.

We cover the entire value chain

We make a virtue of being forward-looking. We always consider the entire value chain from the genetic beginnings to food production. Our comprehensive view enables us to optimise the process, minimise costs and create better financial returns.

The world's leading geneticists develop and rubber-stamp our genetic material

We work with one of the world’s leading experts in genetics and genome selection. Roslin Technologies from Edinburgh University has a history of ground-breaking research and technology, and since 1994 the company has made a huge mark on the development of genetic research. With the geneticists from Roslin Technologies as our genetics business partner, we can use our strong genetics experience to develop the genetics of the future.
