About Kokkenborg

In 1993 Jens and Dorte Himmelstrup started their first pigproduction.

Kokkenborg was established in 207 as a breeding heard in newly built stables, which were expanded in 2011 and 2019.

Kokkenborg has a state-of-the-art full-line system, where the latest technology and equipment ensure the optimal framework for the production of healthy, strong and social gilts with animal welfare in the forefront.

We are Danish Genetics Partner
A world-class breeding programme

Danish Pig Genetics’ breeding programme is world-class and developed in collaboration with leading geneticists from Roslin Technologies.

The breeding programme and the boar stations are PRRS negative.

Kokkenborg offers gilts with genetics of Danish Pig Genetics – a hybrid that is the market’s most ideal production sow for slaughter pig production, as far as efficiency and profitable production are concerned.

This is due to he hybrid sow’s low feed consumption, high growth rate, high degree of fertility, good parenting skills, long lifespan and high meat quality.
