Laboratory Practices – Setup good routines

A well-designed laboratory layout combined with thorough lab practices focusing on uncompromised hygiene is the backbone in producing high-quality DanBred semen doses .

...

Management

Cleaning practice – secure semen quality

Cleaning and disinfection are a corner stone in semen quality - focusing on correct cleaning practice is imperative to preserving the high-quality and shelf life of DanBred semen.

...

Release potential

Semen hygiene – Increase semen quality

Hygiene is fundamental to ensuring semen quality. The introduction of clearly defined hygiene protocols that maintain a focus on hygiene during collection will increase quality as well as shelf-life.

...

Release potential

Collection – Achieve full potential of semen

Proper preparation and sanitation are of the utmost importance when it comes to in the process of semen collection and an important for achieving the full value of DanBreds reproductive performance.

...

Integration

Boar training 1 – efficient management and handling

Correct training of DanBred boars form the basis for many successful collections in the future and represent the onset of obtaining the maximum productivity.

...

Integration

Transport – Effect on boar performance

The correct transport and handling of on-farm boars is of the utmost importance to release their full genetic potential, whilst also preserving the high-quality of the boars- especially their semen.

...

Release potential / Management

Piglet growth – Support colostrum supply

Colostrum is essential for piglet health and growth. Ensuring sufficient colostrum intake during the first 12 hours after farrowing is achieved by a disciplined approach to day 1 care of the piglets.

...

Release potential

Farrowing – Procedures for success

Capturing the immense production potential of the DanBred sow relies on fundamentally sound and proven management practices.

...

Release potential / Feeding

Weaning – The foundation for success

Successful rearing of many high-quality piglets is highly related to the transition from a milk-based diet to a solid feed diet. Correct handling will maximise daily gain and piglet growth rates.

...

Management

Mating – Reach reproductive success

Careful attention to heat stimulation, timing of insemination and the insemination technique can help you attain the full reproductive potential of DanBred.

...

Release potential / Management

Large litters – Correct handling

Success in managing hyper prolific DanBred sows is centered around piglet management. Knowing how to rear the extra piglets is essential to capture the full production potential of the DanBred female.

...

Management

Heat management observations – Increase productivity

DanBred breeding animals deliver extraordinary reproduction results and careful heat observation will increase insemination success and greatly contribute to optimising production flows.

...

Management

Quality assurance of high value breeding stock

On farm issues with umbilical hernia might indicate that it is time to focus on best management practice within the farrowing and piglet units.

...

Integration

Quarantine for high value breeding stock

Proper acclimatisation, with a well-managed quarantine period allows the breeding stock to adjust to the climate, feed, housing and management, is essential when receiving high health DanBred animals.

...

Integration / Management

Pregnancy testing – Worth the effort

Attain the full potential of DanBred with systematic management of on-farm pregnancy tests combined with a consequent culling strategy to optimise overall efficiency and reduce Non-Productive Days.

...

Integration

Health assurance of high value breeding stock

High health DanBred animals are well known for world-class performance- implementing the correct health integration strategy for the new breeding stock will ensure world-class performance on farm.

...

Integration

New arrivals – Inspect and assess breeding stock

High health DanBred breeding stock represent the future of the herd- proper selection and management upon arrival will help form the basis for best possible production and lifetime performance.

...

Integration

Semen Doses – Maximise productivity with correct handling

Artificial insemination has become a standard, especially among modern farms working with DanBred high-quality genetics. Correct handling of the semen is vital to achieve the extraordinary potential.

...

Release potential / Feeding

Lactation – Supporting a high number of nursing piglets

DanBred breeding animals come with an extraordinary genetic potential for reproductive performance. Focused attention on management and feeding during lactation has been proven to support piglets.

...

Feeding

Gestation – Keeping body condition in focus

Focusing on body condition throughout the gestation period has shown to be highly correlated to success in the farrowing unit and subsequent lifetime reproductive productivity.

...

Feeding

Gilt feeding – Restricted phase feeding

Gilts represent the future production of sow herds and DanBred gilts come with an extraordinary genetic potential for reproductive performance.

...

Feeding

Gilt feeding – Ad libitum feeding

Careful attention to the feeding of the DanBred gilt will be rewarded in the farrowing unit- setting a prime starting point on the road to release their genetic capability.
