Maternal line


Large White AXIOM

Prolificacy’s criteria have always been of great importance in the selection of large white AXIOM, making it one of the largest prolific whites in the world. For several years, AXIOM has been dedicating part of the selection to the range criteria to produce heavy and homogeneous piglets, a guarantee of autonomy for the bristles (sows) and also a guarantee of success for the later stages of weaning and fattening. The production criteria are an integral part of the selection objective of Large White AXIOM, in particular, the criterion of the consumption index, through the control of boars in the Azay-sur-Indre Centre.

Landrace AXIOM

The Landrace AXIOM also has a large part of its target selection dedicated to prolificacy. Recognized for its maternal qualities, the selection objective increases the quality of the Landrace AXIOM range by selecting the birth weight and homogeneity of the litter. Like the other female lineages, the Azay-sur-Indre Centre houses Landrace boars to control the consumption, growth index and to locate the best individuals in the AIC.

Choice Genetics


It is a large white hyper-prolific lineage that stands out for its great maternal aptitude. It has been selected to obtain excellent growth characteristics, resulting in a progeny with very good production results, good growth and a tight conversion rate. The morphological selection carried out in recent years has also resulted in a lineage with an average tits above 15.7 making her able to raise her entire litter with no difficulty.


DanBred Landrace

The DanBred Landrace is one of the female breeds used in the Danish crossbreeding programme for the production of YL sows/gilts. The Landrace has a exceptional carcass quality. Because of their high fertility, Landrace sows are often used as dams for YL sows, which are the best hybrid sows for the production of finishers. DanBred Landrace is a strong pig with solid legs. It is known for its high quality meat.

DanBred Yorkshire

Like the DanBred Landrace, the DanBred Yorkshire is also used as a female breed in the crossbreeding system. It is the best breed with regard to daily gain, feed conversion, meat percentage and meat quality. That is why this breed is used (in a smaller extent) as a terminal sire for finishers. The DanBred Yorkshire also features high fertility and brilliant mothering abilities.

DanBred Duroc

In combination with LY/YL sows, the DanBred Duroc is an effective terminal sire breed. In Denmark, there is a long tradition for using Duroc boars as the terminal sire and LY/YL sows as mothers of finishers. Crossing these three breeds enables pig producers to benefit from hybrid vigour which results in optimal daily gain, a high meat percentage and excellent quality meat. For example, DanBred Duroc finishers’ daily growth is about 100 grams greater than finishers from Pietrain boars.
