KuneKune Breed Standard (AKKPS)

August 8, 2017

We register our KuneKune's with the American KuneKune Pig Society. The members and officers are some of the friendliest and most helpful people I've met in the animal husbandry world. I've found they are more than willing to help others get started in the KuneKune world. Maybe pig folks are just like that?

 

Here is the breed standard according to the AKKPS, which is a standard that was adopted from the British KuneKune pig society but with some minor adjustments.
