Purebred Swine Breeder
DanBred Yorkshire is the second female breed in the DanBred crossbreeding system.
DanBred Yorkshire is characterised by its good mothering abilities, and it produces large litters of uniform and vigorous piglets. Furthermore, DanBred Yorkshire has a high daily gain, high feed efficiency and a good meat quality, which makes this breed extremely effective for production of pork.
Consequently, DanBred Yorkshire is primarily used as a female breed for production of DanBred Hybrid, which is the optimal cross for production of finishers.
DanBred Yorkshire originates from England and has been part of the Danish Pig Breeding Programme since the beginning of the 1970s.
