Animal welfare and health


To do things as natural as possible, we wean our piglets by allowing them to have milk with their mother as long as she has milk. This is usually up to 17 weeks. Normally piglets are weaned at 4 to 7 weeks.


This natural weaning means that our pigs never have problems with diarrhea that is usually treated with penicillin.


•Our sows farrow about 7-8 piglets a year, normal sows have about 30 piglets a year.

•At HindsholmPork there isn’t any medicine like penicillin on the farm. The vet is called in case of sickness and if a pig is treated, it is marked so it can always be traced. Our pigs our healthy and fit because of the way we raise them.
