Farrowing Schedule

Updated: Apr 8

This is our planned farrowing schedule and we will keep it updated as plans change. You can easily remember a pigs gestation period by "3 months 3 weeks and 3 day". This actually adds up to 114 days, however Kunekunes have a gestation period of 116 days. I really like the New Zealand Kunekune's associations post on farrowing if you want to read more information on the subject.


2021


March 24, 2021 - Awakino x <Tutaki or Tuahuru> (Amaretto)

Amaretto aka Amy came to us pregnant and was exposed to 2 different boars. Amy had 8 piglets!


March 31, 2021 - Sally x <Tutaki or Tuahuru> (Banks)

Banks aka Amy came to us pregnant and was exposed to 2 different boars. Banks had 6 piglets!


April 5, 2021 - Jenny x Tuahuru (Nugget x Corbin)

Nugget will be a first time mom and seems to have settled successfully with Corbin. Nugget had 5 piglets!

COI: 6.10% AKKPS


April- Aria Giana x <Tutaki or Tuahuru> (Emma)

Emma came to us pregnant and was exposed to 2 different boars. Due date is estimated for March or April. Emma looks like she will be due in April or her pregnancy did not settle. We have her exposed to Chopper right now just in case.


April - Jenny x Boris (Dorothy x Uno)

Dorothy will be a first time mom this Spring and seems to have settled successfully with Uno. Her expected due date is April 1.

COI: 5.6% AKKPS / 3.92% AKPR


April - Tapeka x Ru (Clover x Pike)

Clover we have historically had a difficult time getting her to settle. We had a confirmed breeding with a due date of April 5th. However it looks like she may have come back into heat and we have her with Pike right now. So her date will most likely be a surprise.

COI: 8.9% AKKPS

May - Jenny x Boris (Scarlet x Uno)

We exposed Scarlet to Uno briefly on February 6th and had a confirmed breeding. She should be due May 31st. However she may not have settled so we may try to expose her to a different boar.

COI: 6.8% AKKPS

July - Aria Giana x Mahia Love (Mace x Glaive)

This is the current tentative plan.

COI: 6.8% AKKPS


September - Jenny x Tuahuru (Panda x Puck)

This is the current tentative plan.

COI: 4.01% AKPR

2022 Feb - Trish x Boris (Shyla x Chopper) COI: 6.5% AKPR Fall - Haunene x ? (Franny) COI: TBD

Fall - ? x Tonganui (Ranseur) COI: TBD


Not all breedings are confirmed. We do not have piglets born from November - February just because the weather can be unpredictable and I hate the cold! All of our piglets are sold via our waiting list as first on the list, first pick. Waiting list details can be found here.
