Denmark: farms producing pigs has declined

The number of farms producing pigs has declined by just under two-thirds in the last decade, but production has risen from just over 20 million to over 29 million pigs.

Data on the number of farms producing pigs in Denmark showed a continuing decline in 2012 to just over 4,000 units, as larger producers continued to increase their share of overall production. The number of farms producing pigs has declined by just under two-thirds in the last decade, but, over the same period, production has risen from just over 20 million to over 29 million pigs.

The industry is hopeful that a more ‘targeted’ approach to environmental and other legislation will allow the Danish food and farming industry to exploit its true potential on global markets. This emerged as a recommendation of a report (‘A New Start’), published by the Commission on Nature and Agriculture during April, with some recognition that overly strict and inflexible rules had damaged Denmark’s competitiveness, with little real benefit for the environment.
