Lykkensgaard is one of Denmark's foremost breeding centers, located on the scenic Røsnæs outside Kalundborg. It is owned and operated today by Ulrik Olsen, who bought it in 2007.
Lykkensgaard Breeding Center has the breeds Landrace and Duroc, and in 2012 we actually achieved a first place in breeding of the Ducoc breed. The breeding center has existed since 1937 and is one of Denmark's oldest herds as it originates from the same year.
Kongestensgaarden propagation is located right on the tip of Røsnæs with water on 3 sides. There are 6 kilometers to the nearest pig production, making it one of the best placed pig productions in the country. Ulrik is the 7th generation from here and took over Kongestensgaarden due to a generation change in 2017. His mother, Lis Olsen, is still working in the stable here besides helping with bookkeeping.
At both farms we put genetics and animal welfare at the forefront, so when you buy breeding animals you are guaranteed strong animals with good growth, long durability, low feed consumption, high meat percentage and high health level. It can be mentioned that we at Lykkensgaard have maintained the same health status since 1986.
