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 artificial insemination company provides optimum use of the boar with a high breeding value because the semen is thinned and divided into several straws. 

The semen can be acquired from the DanAvl artificial insemination stations.

The purchase of new breeding material such as semen straws from an artificial insemination station offers a wide range of advantages:

  • breeding material can be added to the herd, with a very limited risk for the introduction of loss-inducing pig diseases. It has been very well documented that the semen does not even carry the SPF-SuS diseases.
  • the artificial insemination boars have a high breeding value, because prime boars from the breeding programme are used to exchange artificial insemination boars with a low index value. The endurance of an artificial insemination boar is thus very short – an average of only 6-7 months for DanAvl L and DanAvl Y boars and approximately 9-10 months for DanAvl Duroc boars.
  • the artificial insemination stations offer the option for purchasing semen from several different boars, and thus spread the genetic risk, which is very low anyway.
  • you can also carry out your own breeding programme with gilts and boars by purchasing the above mentioned semen. However, facilities with their own breeding programme should also use nucleus management as a tool in order to achieve the best possible exploitation of their own breeding programme.
  • the fertilisation performance of the semen is guaranteed by the artificial insemination station thanks to professional handling and quality assurance during production and delivery. The artificial insemination companies contribute to further development each year by carrying out tests in the field of artificial insemination.
  • the working processes in the facilities are simplified by buying semen, which means that working resources can be used for other areas.
