Elite Sires has been Ireland’s leading provider of high-quality pig semen for 30 years.
Irish pig producers have been increasing their profits continually during that time thanks to our ever-improving pig genetics. Based in Coleraine, in Northern Ireland, Elite Sires has enjoyed the same steady growth experienced by our customers and is the biggest supplier of fresh pig semen on the island of Ireland.
Our team extracts semen at our carefully managed laboratory and deliver secure packages fresh to your facility anywhere in Ireland within hours.
Our customers range from small producers to large scale pig businesses, but all have achieved tremendous results over the last decade. Their success is all in genes which are thanks to our partnership with the Danish and world-leading swine genetics experts at DanBred.
Elite Sires is the sole provider of DanBred’s cutting-edge swine genetics on the island of Ireland. All of our animals are imported from the Danish DNA specialists and are the highest indexed boars in Ireland.
When we first visited the DanBred team almost a decade ago, we were blown away by what we saw and today so are our customers. We imported DanBred’s genetically superior boars and gilts and quickly saw fantastic results that changed the pig producing landscape for our customers.
Thanks to DanBred genetics, producers increased from 25 piglets weaned per sow per year to 35 today. Feed conversion to daily gains was formerly at a ratio of 3:1, while today it is close to 2:1 and still improving.
These gains in pig production are the reason Elite Sires is the leading biggest of fresh semen to Irish pig farmers/producers.
