At the moment, veterinary restrictions prevent the sale of DanAvl sows to Finland — the campaign is based on boars to AI-stations. "It is a breakthrough for DanAvl to enter the Finnish market," said Nicolaj Nørgaard, CEO of the Danish Pig Research Centre. "I believe that this is a result of our documented good results on traits like feed conversion and survival." In Finland, AI stations will import boars to supply around 100,000 sows across the country.
