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.


As a result of entering into a delivery agreement on boars and gilts, both regular access to new animals and the renewal of the breeding material in your own herd are ensured. An order must always be placed six to eight weeks in advance, so that the supplier can immunise the animals in a timely manner. It is important that you communicate your requirements clearly to the distributor, so that you and the distributor can cooperate according to mutual satisfaction and that a clear and unambiguous dialogue will take place before each delivery.

Purchase strategy
It is necessary to develop a strategy for the purchase of new animals, so that a suitable number of gilts are maintained in the herd by means of purchases made at three or four month intervals.

Mainly purchase animals between the age of three to five month, because they can more easily adjust to relocation than older animals. Furthermore, the selection of good quality animals is greater with younger animals, having the additional advantage that it is possible to purchase animals in groups already established. However, always ensure a certain spread of ages, so that new animals only need to be added to the herd as few times as possible.

Ask your distributor to supply a health certificate or declaration for the herd from where you wish to purchase animals.
