Katie’s KuneKune Pigs

I love to hear from other pig enthusiasts so it was great to hear from Katie who was enquiring about her kunekune sow who she thought might be pregnant.

I have a sow and a boar in together. they have been together about 3 months. i thought the sow was pregnant but over the weekend her vulva has swollen and there is a goey substance around it and on the boar. im not sure now if she is pregnant. she has started to bag up though. im so confused please any advise would be grateful.

Katie is a member of the farmingfriends forum and we have been communicating on the forum here http://farmingfriends.com/forums/topic.php?id=206

She has just sent me some photos of her three kune kune pigs so I thought that I would share them with you.

Here is Coleen the kune kune gilt.

I am still waiting to hear if Coleen is pregnant will give you an update when I hear anything. Coleen was pregnant and has now had nine beautiful kunekune piglets.

A useful book for a new pig keeper and breeder is the book Starting With Pigs by Andy Case.
