The Vice Minister of Agriculture in Vietnam visited Danish Farm Concept at their booth at the Vietstock trade show in October.
“He was very impressed by our farm model, which is a great way to showcase a +35 PSY full line project with complete supply from Danish Farm Concept,” reported Danish Farm Concept.
Danish Farm Concept is a company and brand name representing the entire Danish model for pig production.
Meat businesses can take advantage of getting the best available know-how in the world incorporated in pig production by choosing Danish Farm Concept.
In early 2016 Danish Farm Concept signed the first contracts to supply investors in Vietnam and the Philippines with new turnkey pig production facilities. Representing the cooperative expertise of six companies, Danish Farm Concept is the first business enterprise with the capability to deliver the complete Danish model for pig production.
Denmark is a global leader in pig production, recognised for a production average above 30 weaned piglets per sow. That has made it a choice destination for investors seeking advice and support about supplying the fast-growing markets of Southeast Asia and China with high quality, locally produced pork.
“Southeast Asian markets have traditionally relied on small-scale farmers to supply the meat they need. But, with consumer demand in rapid growth, such farms are incapable of producing enough pork of the right quality,” said Bjarne Kornbek Pedersen, initiator behind Danish Farm Concept and director of one of the participating companies, Danish Farm Design.
“Danish Farm Concept offers a holistic package. Our expertise ranges over robust and environmentally friendly farm designs; genetics for high productivity and top quality breeding animals; biosecurity, nutrition and health; education programmes and pig farm management.
“Our member companies can provide advice, expertise and training and deliver the equipment and technology for a highly efficient operation.”
The professional pig production facilities for Vietnam and the Philippines were tailored to local needs and conditions. Once in operation, they would both supply safe food to demanding consumers and deliver good returns to investors.
“The producers who do best are those who optimise all parameters – animal care, infection protection and farm management. Danish Farm Concept can equip them to achieve that,” Pedersen said.
The six companies behind Danish Farm Concept cover all aspects of the Danish model for pig production: education, management, housing technology, biosecurity and health, genetics and nutrition. The companies are: Dalum Academy of Agricultural Business, Danish Farm Design, DanBred International, Skov, Vissing Agro and Hamlet Protein.
