About us

One of the prerequisites for running and continuously developing a profitable production of pigs is the consistent implementation of up to date know-how in Danish pig production.

The sector board of the Danish Agriculture & Food Council, Pig Production - in cooperation with the Director of SEGES Danish Pig Research Centre - approves the pig-related research and development activities to be undertaken by SEGES.
