Genetics

For many years now AGROECO Group works on the development of its own livestock. Company's genetics program, adapted to the global trends in pork consumption and industry requirements, includes 2 main fields.

DANISH GENETICS

Danish Genetics products are a conscious choice of professionals. Pedigree animals of the Danish genetics line have an excellent yield of processed products during slaughter and deboning, their meat has high PH level, excellent taste characteristics and reduced fat content. When used in commercial husbandry, Danish Genetics breeding animals demonstrate best results in the industry in terms of feed consumption per 1 kg of weight gain.

Marbled pork of Canadian genetics

Black Duroc animals are an exclusive premium product on the Russian market, which is produced only for processing and sale in AGROECO's own retail network and HoReCa channel. “Marble” pork has distinct appearance due to the thin fat streaks. This product has high gastronomic value, excellent taste characteristics, delicate aroma and is highly appreciated both by ordinary consumers and professional meat sommeliers.

AGROECO Group is an exclusive distributor of DANISH GENETICS products on the Russian market.


DANISH GENETICS genetic program:

  • 39 Danish breeders
  • Over 10 international partners
  • Pedigree population of 40,000 purebred sows
  • 25,000 of them are in Denmark
  • 100% genome selection with weekly index updates
  • Danish animal health monitoring system SPF-SUS
  • High health status of breeding animals
  • High lines diversity and low inbreeding ratio
  • Electronic identification system for breeding animals

AGROECO SELECTIVE AND GENETIC CENTER

AGROECO breeding operations are in
full compliance with Danish selection protocols.

Morozovsky Selective and Genetic Center is located in Bobrovsky District of Voronezh Oblast. This is the largest nucleus of Danish genetics in Russia and one of the largest in Eastern Europe.


Through the use of high technologies, processes in the SGC are automated:

  • eSmile system identifies animals in SIO
  • Shauer automated feeding stations help to assess boar productivity
  • IVOS system evaluates semen quality parameters with high accuracy
  • Breeding records are maintained in CloudFarm system
  • EXAGO scanner measures fat thickness and depth of the rib eye

GENETIC PRODUCTS

Maternal lines of the breeding herd are represented by two breeds: Danish Yorkshire and Danish Landrace. They are characterized by prolificacy, high livability of newborn piglets, rapid weight gain, good milking capacity.

Paternal line is represented by the Danish Duroc breed. These terminal boars have strong constitution, high weight gain with minimal feed consumption.

First generation hybrids of Danish genetics, F1 pigs, are characterized by high productivity and good maternal qualities.
