WHY CHOOSE Caroline Malott of RED ROOF KUNEKUNES as your breeder?
My commitment to my buyers is to be their mentor for as long as they need my help. If mentoring is not needed I am always available to help with any questions that arise or to bounce ideas off of. I am available by phone, text, email or Facebook PM. I am available 24/7 365 days a year. If I am not reachable/available I do have a reliable breeder that will step in and help my clients in an emergency.
I served as on the AKKPS Board of Directors for a little over 3 years - 11/2015 to 12/31/2018 - as Vice President and Treasurer. Through my terms on the AKKPS BOD I learned an incredible amount about KuneKunes and the value of purchasing registered stock from a reputable, knowledgable breeder.
When I first started raising KuneKunes I knew very little. I was lucky enough to find a mentor who was willing to help me learn. Because of this I offer to mentor free of charge to anyone that purchases piglets from me whether the pig is for breeding or a family pet. I am her 24/7/365 to help all of my buyers for as long as they need my help. My commitment to my buyers is to be their mentor if needed for as long as they need my help.
WHY CHOOSE KUNEKUNES & WHAT MAKES RED ROOF KUNEKUNES DIFFERENT?
KuneKunes are a wonderful breed of pig that are super friendly and have personalities to match …. it is hard not to fall head over heals in love the minute you meet one. They are happiest with at least one other pig but once you meet them you will never be able to have just one!
KuneKunes are on the smaller side…. usually between 150 and 350 pounds full grown. They do not tend to root however they can if grass and grain is sparse.
KuneKunes have short upturned snouts for grazing. If they have access to grass all year long, this is all the food they will need however they really enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a pig pellet.
We sell quality pigs for breeding, showing and homesteading. In addition we sell pigs that are pet quality. We can sell singles or breeding pairs / trios. If Red Roof does not have exactly what you are looking for or need , we can pull from other resources that have comparable quality pigs. All of our pigs are registered with the AKKPS and come microchipped and DNA tested …. even pet pigs are registered.
Our bloodlines include Trish, Mamona, Tapeka, Aria Giana, Wilsons Gina, Jenny, Rebecca Gina, Huanene, Sally, Kereopa, Andrew, Tonganui, Ru, BH Tutaki, Te Whangi and Tuahuru.
All of our piglets are born in heated farrowing quarters and get lots of socialization so that when they go to their new home they are well socialized. They will start their lives around children, adults, goats, chickens and dogs! Please refer to our for F&Q page for lots more information on raising Kunekunes.
Pictured below are the farrowing quarters at Red Roof KuneKunes. Inside this barn there are 3 farrowing stalls each with its own outdoor paddock. In addition this building has 2 weaning stalls and an outside paddock to go along with each. The feed room and office is also inside this building. The adult pigs have a separate barn as well as sleeping huts in each of their paddocks.
THE TAKE HOME FORM
By: Caroline Malott

When I first started breeding, it did not take me long to realize the importance of record keeping - not only for myself but also for my buyers. I came up with the idea of a form that all information would be kept on for each individual piglet - both breeding piglets and pet piglets.
It took me many different drafts of my “Take Home Form” to get it to where I was satisfied. There are still changes that I am making for the next time the forms are printed. The forms are carbon paper - one for me and one for my buyer. This “Take Home Form” also serves as my contract for both new piglets and pigs that are being transferred. This form has all the pertinent information needed for me, the seller to register the pigs. The form gives buyers the information they will need for feed, shots, heat lamps, to run COI’s etc. When a litter is born, I start a new form for each piglet. If I have a piglet that passes away I mark the form accordingly. As each piglet sell and has a depositor, I email this form filled out and continue to add to the form until the pig goes home with the original client portion of the form.
I can not tell you how many times this form has truly saved me time and helped me be as organized as possible. I use this form to keep all of my vaccination and DNA records so it is super easy to know which piglet has had what and when. I attach one of the labels that comes with each microchip to this form - this is very useful in identifying piglets easily when you have piglets that look similar. When I register or transfer the pig, this form has everything that I need to do the registration papers correctly and it definitely saves a lot of time having everything in one place and on one piece of paper. I have also used this form with existing clients to run COI’s with currently owned piglets to new ones I have for sale.
I hope that sharing this form will help other buyers with ideas for their own form if they choose to create a “Take Home Form.”
