Increase Your Total Merit With DanAvl

In the future, the world’s leading breeding system shall be known by one just name throughout the world:  DanAvl. 

A threefold increase of exports makes new demands on branding as well as a better service of the customer.


The health status of a herd plays a big role as to the extent to which the genetic potential of the animal can be exploited – this applies primarily to the daily weight gain, feed conversion and longevity. For this reason, we at DanAvl place great value on health. All DanAvl nucleus and multiplier herds are subject to clear rules relating to protection against the risks of infection and health checks.

The majority of the DanAvl facilities are also subject to the Danish SPF-SuS programme, where the rules for protection against the risks of infection and health checks are particularly strict.

Health declaration
Due to the ongoing health checks, an ongoing health declaration system for each individual herd with documented information on health status is maintained for each individual nucleus and multiplier herd. A minimum requirement for DanAvl pigs is that they are free of porcine dysentery, mange and lice.

The health certification enables you to purchase your animals from a herd with at least the same state of health as that which was already in your own herd.
