German Piétrain Boars

Our boars are the only German Piétrain boars in the world with the STRESS FREE gene!

On top of that they are boars with the highest health status!

All stress free animals - so called NN.

All sows in our farm are genomic selected and are stress free (NN).
Since all the boars we use are also NN all the offspring will also be stress negative.

In many other pietrain breeding farms some animals are NP, and this will give some progeny. which is carrier of stress.

German Piétrain - Hector

The breeding program German Piétrain represents the largest coherent and jointly processed Piétrain population of the world. The GenomPLUS Boars from German Piétrain is the undisputed market leader in Germany and is currently developing additional market shares in the Benelux countries as well as in Spain, Portugal, Denmark and France.

Hector is characterized by a balanced ratio of meat content and growth with excellent performance in feed utilization, meat quality, and homogeneity.

We offer the German Piétrain program boar HECTOR as a pure-bred Piétrain boar with superior growth, highest feed efficiency and best vitality of his piglets.

The Formation of a HECTOR boar is based on the most innovative breeding value models and the use of the genomic selection developed from the German Piétrain total population.

In contrast to many other end products, HECTOR still scores high with good AutoFOM-suitability and safe lean meat despite its high growth potential. Daily increases of 920 g to 1000 g and a feed conversion of 2.2 - 2.4 are realistic goals

German Piétrain Inodorus


German Piétrain is offering a certified boar type with the INODORUS, which is decisively different from the average of the population. When the INODORUS is used, the probability of the occurrence of so-called "odor evacuators" is largely reduced and virtually excluded. The INODORUS is therefore the ideal boar for all finishers and special programs.

Within the world's largest Piétrain population, with more than 2,300 breeding sows, the most important lines were developed from 31 different Piétrain genealogies. Since the heritability levels of the leading substances of the odors for androstenone are 0.6 and for Skatole are 0.5 they are excellently usable within the German Piétrain population and could be selected very effectively against these odor features.

Current evaluations show that finishers of uncastrated male animals can bring the advantage of a better feed utilization and higher muscle meat contents in the carcass compared to castrates. If, on the other hand, the hosting side offers a financial incentive for slaughtered boars, the uncastrated males can be an alternative to the existing system. The final decision lies with the operations manager. However, if you want a production with out castration - INODORUS is the first choice!

In future we will be working with two boar lines: HECTOR und MATRIX. To the HECTOR or MATRIX we can add the qualifications INODORUS (against boar odor), GOURMET (good meat quality) and COLIN (Coli-Resistance).

About the Germain Piétrain breed

The German Piétrain pig has a performance, physique, type and resistance, which should aid in obtaining the breeding goals:

  • high and stable fertility and rearing performance
  • intensive in growth; up to of 120-125 kg weight at the end with good feed utilization
  • good carcass quality as well as good meat texture
  • favorable intramuscular fat content
  • Excellent resilience, stress resistance and longevity

The story about Piétrain

The Piétrain swine originated in the 1920s from an art of Belgian landrace pig, which was crossbred with different precocious breeds.

The name derives from the village of Piétrain in the province of Brabant, where only one breeder kept this breed.

At the end of the 1950s, the first Piétrain pigs were imported into the Federal Republic of Germany.

As paternal breed the Piétrain is of great importance for the production of finishers, and it’s used in almost all breeding programs for finishers.

The most healthy German Piétrain in the world!

We sell the world's cleanest German Piétrain boars from our Danish (Specific Pathogen Free) SPF property. That is why, among other things, we are also guaranteed free of diseases such as:

SPF diseases:

  • PRRS US / EU
  • Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae
  • Pneumoniae Actinobacillus spp.
  • Dysenteriae
  • Mange (Sarcoptes Suis)
  • Lice
  • Aujesky disease
  • Atrophic rhinitis

In order to guarantee this status the herd is tested on a regular basis by specialized swine veterinarians. Furthermore it goes without saying that all animals prior to export are tested according to customer’s wishes and are delivered with full documentation.
