Fight African Swinefever with Biosecurity
Danish Farm Concept integrates the newest know-how, while designing pig projects. Thus, hashtag biosecurity and protecting the farm against infections has top priority. The spreading of African Swine Fever in Europe and China has put everyone in the pig industry on high alert. Since no vaccine is available for combatting this disease, biosecurity is the only weapon available.

At the farm level, a lot can be done to reduce the risk of hashtag ASF and other diseases from entering the herd. Access points for vehicles and persons must be fully controlled. Therefore, we prepare our designs and layouts of farms with this in mind. Trucks bringing feed and especially vehicles transporting pigs to and from the farm are great risk factors. We also include truck washes and baking units at critical locations.

Since it is more or less impossible to secure that all infectious agents are killed by washing and disinfecting alone we include a “baking” unit for heating up transport vehicles at a high temperature and long enough to make sure that all infectious agents are eliminated.

One of Danish Farm Concepts bigger projects in China is running with 6,000 sows full-line 
The pictures below show the units for weaners and sows, and two sites of 30,000 finishers units that are under the last project-phase of equipment installation. The project is now having the first farrowing, since project launch.

Danish Farm Concept supports the entire farm with farm management from Danish Farm Design, who guides the employees and takes care of the daily management.

This weaner and sow unit will end up having around 50 farm workers, who will support the daily routines. For even further support and production security, Danish Farm Concept has established a 3-year production guarantee for the entire project.

Danish Farm Concept participates at the “Sino-Danish sustainable agriculture forum” organized by IFU and The Royal Danish Embassy in China
The event 'A Window of Sustainable Opportunities in China' took place at the West China agriculture fair (CCIAPF) in Chongqing on Jan 20th and 21st 2018.

The Chinese agricultural industry is continuously developing, and Chinese authorities demand that it becomes more sustainable. Almost all provinces in Western China have dedicated their financial plan to support development in sustainable agriculture which give access to huge agriculture markets in this area.

The event 'A Window of Sustainable Opportunities in China' was aiming to make synergy from policy, finance and technology and to promote Sino-Danish partnership in sustainable agriculture in Western China.

During the day there were presentation and round-table discussion covering the support from political side, financial opportunities and the value of innovative technology for sustainable agriculture. The day ended with “match-making” between companies and potential business partners.

From Danish Farm Concept Bjarne K. Pedersen made a presentation explaining how our solution with Danish technology, Scandinavian genetics, management routines etc. meets the challenges in Chinese pig production. Bjarne also illustrated how a project established together with Danish Farm Concept results in the shortest payback time in the industry because of high productivity and extremely low production costs.

The event was a great platform to meet existing business partners and just as important to create new networks and thereby give Danish Farm Concept a chance to open for new opportunities in Western China.
