CARE

Kunekune are "grazing pigs", extremely efficient with the ability to fatten on good pasture and low feed input.

HEALTH

One of the most important steps a farm can take in providing a healthy environment for their livestock is to have a biosecurity plan in action.

REPRODUCTION

During the week prior to delivering you will see changes in the sow's teats, the position of belly bulge, enlarging of the vulva, and restlessness in the sow.
