Denmark - Expectations of 2013

In 2001, the EU decided that all sows must be housed loose by 2013, giving the pig producers 12 years to adapt. In Denmark, this legislation was introduced in 1998. To form an impression of the situation in Denmark, Hatting-KS, the Danish Pig Producers’ Association and Pig Research Centre forwarded questionnaires to all Danish sow farmers with more than 100 sows asking them about their expectations of 2013.

In 2001, the EU decided that all sows must be housed loose by 2013, giving the pig producers 12 years to adapt. In Denmark, this legislation was introduced in 1998. To form an impression of the situation in Denmark, Hatting-KS, the Danish Pig Producers’ Association and Pig Research
Centre forwarded questionnaires to all Danish sow farmers with more than 100 sows asking them about their expectations of 2013.

Almost 700 producers responded. The survey revealed that:

• 68% of all gestating sows are already housed loose
• 94% of the producers expect to continue production after 2013
• These 94% generally expect to increase their sow population by 14% in 2013
• Among the producers who have not yet converted their facilities, half have applied or are applying for new environmental approvals and just as many intend to use the scheme for reporting of changes.
