Information About Us

This is Eskebjerg Breeding Center, Denmark - a part of the Piétrain Denmark Breeding program. 
In this remote location on the island of Funen in Denmark some of the world's best performing purebred Piétrain pigs are being made. 

Location

The location of the farm is in the southern
part of Funen, which is placed in a very
beautiful area of Denmark. Our location
Eskebjerg was chosen because it’s located
very far away from other pig farms and
has a very long history without diseases.
Before making caesarian sections we made
a thorough cleaning of the farm; cleaned,
washed and disinfected

Biosecurity

We have the highest level of biosecurity
and all people visiting the farm must
shower and change their clothe before
entering the farm.

Also they have to write in the book for
visitors. That way we can always follow
who is entering the farm.

Vision

Our vision is to have the highest health status of all farms in the world;

To be free from most diseases beside the normal, which means also being free from resistant bacteria, e.g. MRSA.
Being able to deliver first class premium animals all over the world.
