Knowledge Center for Pig Production

The Knowledge Center for Pig Production implements the development, testing and service jobs that create more value for Danish pig producers, to ensure the best methods to produce pigs in Denmark. The focus is to translate knowledge and technology into practice to ensure that the Danish pig producers have continuously international competitiveness. At the same time pig farming has to develop in a sustainable way. Furthermore, we focus on optimizing the business environment and improve the pig sector’s image through the setting of objectives and by contact and negotiation with regulators / authorities in strategic areas eg. animal welfare, the environment and animal health.

Primary role in the project

An environmentally sustainable Danish pig production is a key strategic competitive parameter. We contribute with knowledge on nitrogen cycling and nitrogen utilization in pig production including power and impact when environmental technologies such as the reduction of ammonia emissions are implemented in the pig industry.

Additional contribution

In addition, we provide quick dissemination of new knowledge because we are close to pig producers with direct and accessible news, information and services, and through close cooperation with crew advisors.
Special interests in relation to the pilot areas
