Otrada Launches the Gene Transfer Center
On October 27, 2022, Otrada officially opened the doors of Russia's first commercial PIC Danish Lines Gene Transfer Center. It is an innovative and advanced project for the production of semen of elite Danish boars with the highest genetic merit. The site in the Stanovlyansky District of the Lipetsk Region with a capacity of up to 350 thousand semen doses per year will simultaneously hold 250 boars of Danish breeds: Otrada Landrace, Otrada Yorkshire and Otrada Duroc.
The opening ceremony was held at the production site itself and raised the interest of the region's top officials, as well as representatives of the leading pig production companies in the country.
"The construction of the Gene Transfer Center fundamentally changes the whole paradigm of the industry," comments Ivan Ageev, Commercial Director of Otrada. "The pork producers in Russia will now have access to elite genes directly from the very top of the breeding pyramid, without any genetic lag. This will enable our customers to take a few steps further in their production performance through employing the advanced genetics."
