We Never Inbreed
As the popularity of KuneKune Pig continues to grow. More pigs are being produced, and there is always the risk that you might not buy quality or outcrossed animals. Always ask to see the pedigree of the parents, even if you are not purchasing a registered pig. Ask questions. A good breeder will be happy to answer anything you can throw at them. When you buy from us, we encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns.
COI (Cofficent of Inbreeding) is a measure of how closely related your KuneKune’s parents are. The higher the inbreeding coefficient (%), the more closely related they are to there parents. In general, higher inbreeding coefficients are associated with increased incidence of genetically inherited conditions, reduced Fertility, and reduced life span.Learn More
We rotate our pigs through nine pastures, moving them every time we rotate our goats during the Spring and Summer. Depending on the quality and quantity of pasture available you may need to supplement. We supplement our pigs with soy meal mostly in the WinterLearn More
Kunekunes are slow-growing and take their time before getting saddled with a bunch of piglets. While they are sexually mature, between five to eight months, they may not be up to reproduction for another six months. It takes some time before the males build up confidence in their seduction.Learn More
One of the reasons Kunekunes make great pets is their colorful personalities. They are gentle, loving and affectionate animals that thrive on social interaction. They have personality plus. They adore tummy rubs. As well as human company, these little creatures love interaction with other animals. So it's a good idea to buy two at a time, even better if they are from the same litter. Don't be afraid to cross graze them with other species.Learn More
Sheltering your KuneKune can be as simple as a lean-to made of plywood or a Doghouse. We have a main barn where most of our KuneKune house during the year. In our outlying Paddocks we have a combination of doghouses and lean-tos. It is important to keep them sheltered from winter winds, ice and snow storms.Learn More
What could be more enjoyable and thrilling than seeing a group of KuneKune piglets romp across the summer's warm, green grass? Do you, on the other hand, shudder at the prospect of wintering pigs on pasture and providing cold-weather care?Learn More
Most pigs today are raised entirely indoors and are fed a diet exclusively of corn and soybeans. Pigs raised outdoors on pasture and in wooded areas are able to eat a diverse diet of plants, insects and nuts, in addition to being fed silage and grain. They are exposed to sunshine and are able to forage, run, jump and root in the soil. This results in healthier animals … and more nutritious food for people as well.
Studies show the nutritional value of pork from pastured pigs that consume grass and forage is higher than pork from conventionally-raised pigs.
The gestation period for Kunekunes is 116 days, 2 days longer than most other pig breeds.The first indication that a sow is ‘in pig’ is failing to come back in season after being mated. Sows will cycle every 18-21 days, but as the signs that a sow in season shows can vary considerably, it can often be hard to determine if a sow has come back into season again after a successful mating.Learn More
I am not a big fan of vaccinations; this is a controversial topic and many breeder’s religiosity vaccinate and others do not. Most people who raise KuneKunes do it on a small scale and I believe it not necessary. Vaccines need a heavy medal like Mercery to work. I believe the cost benefit is not there to subject my pigs to toxic mental that never leaves their system. If you feel strongly about vaccines, consult your local Vet. about their recommended vaccine programLearn More
Male pigs, both intact and castrated, have tooth-like projections called tusks that grow from both the top and bottom jaw. The thick, hard, armor-like skin that covers the shoulders of boars is due to their tusks, which are utilized for fighting other boars.I strongly support routine tusk trimming even though it isn't one of my favorite KuneKune activities. Although boars can be housed together and kunekunes are a placid breed, a hierarchy must still be formed through sparring. It may get fairly rough, and having tusked boars makes it more dangerous.Learn More
KuneKune pigs are enjoying rising popularity. Due to there docile disposition and smaller size. They are an ideal pig for small farms and homesteads.If you never owned pigs, I recommend you research as much as possible on raising Swine.KuneKune are a unique breed and there is not much out there in print. I recommend that you search the internet, keep in mind there is a lot of misinformation out there so get more than one source.The are three breed registries for KuneKune pigs. International KuneKune Pig Society, The International KuneKune Hog Registry and the American KuneKune Pig Society. Breeders may register with either organization or with All.Learn More
There are a range of viruses and bacteria causing pneumonia, bronchitis, and nasal cavity infections. Rapid or laboured breathing usually means a very serious illness, and needs immediate treatment. Coughing may be caused by bronchitis or pneumonia but may also be due to lungworm infection.
Where did kunes originally come from?The question of where kune kunes originally came from is still under debate. There are several theories:In 1945 an article in the Journal of Agriculture by J W Peirson speculated that kune kunes originated in China from the Old Poland breed. These Polish pigs are black and white and are the only other pigs in the world to display chin tassels. The name kune kune and colours of the pigs also correspond with the Old Poland pig. It seems probable that kunes are descendants of the breed, and came to New Zealand through trading between the Maori and American whalers in New Zealand in the mid 1800s.Learn More
Kunekune pigs (pronounced “cooney cooney”) are a smart option for small farms. Kunekune means “fat and round” in the Maori language. These tasseled, sweet-tempered, medium-sized pigs hail from New Zealand. While no one knows for sure, they are thought to be a cross of Berkshire, Poland China and possibly Gloucester Old Spots among pigs from Indonesia.Females weigh 100 to 175 pounds on average, while males weigh 200 to 250 pounds or more. They don't challenge fences and have small, upturned snouts that discourage rooting. Kunekunes are grazing pigs that can thrive on modest inputs, making them an attractive breed when grain costs are rising. Kunekune pork has been dubbed "excellent" by Los Angeles chefs.Learn More
