About Kunekune Pigs
The KuneKune is
a small breed of domestic pig. KuneKune’s are hairy, with a rotund build and may have wattles (a small piece of hanging flesh, similar to a rooster’s
wattle). Their colors range from black and white, to ginger, cream, gold-tip,
black, brown and tri-colored. They
have laid back, docile, friendly personalities.
The KuneKune was once near
certain extinction and they were only found in New Zealand and kept by the
Maori people. Luckily now they are widely bred and make wonderful and adorable
KuneKune pigs are a perfect homestead pig as they are grazers and can finish out on just good pasture. Because they have short upturned noses they do not root as much and destroy pastures like many pigs do.
