KuneKune Events

Upcoming Events

KuneKune Events for KuneKune Education are held monthly by virtual meetings. Each month there is a topic of discussion, and we gather to learn together. It is an open discussion group where you can meet with other KuneKune Breeders and learn from each other and IKKPS. We meet virtually and everyone is unmuted and encouraged to share their challenges, and knowledge and ask questions. Great networking opportunities!

Enter a KuneKune Show to learn more about conformation directly from the judge. Earn great show titles and bragging rights. Learning more about conformation will help you improve your breeding program.

What to expect in the KuneKune Event

KuneKune Education is especially important for breeders to learn. First, when you join one of the IKKPS KuneKune events you can expect it to be a very relaxed atmosphere in which KuneKune Breeders are sharing their experiences and knowledge to better the KuneKune breed. Second, you can expect everyone to be very friendly. Therefore, it will help those who are a bit shy to speak out in public forums to have more courage to do so in the smaller community.

Likewise, we also have a chat box where we will read your questions and answer them to make you feel more comfortable as well. Finally, you can expect to have fun and to learn. Share as much or as little as you like. It truly is a ton of fun and getting to put faces with names is great as well. We are building a community of KuneKune Breeders interested in learning, sharing, and helping one another.

Topics Discussed

First, each month there is a different topic, and the topics are picked by the members. Therefore, you know that it is a topic that members want to learn more about. As a result, it is relevant to other members. These topics will vary each month. While it is vital to learn from each other, we will be turning the topics into videos and posting them later below as well. However, I encourage you to learn with the group and this is a membership benefit only available to IKKPS members.

Questions and Answers

First, we always want to answer your questions. That is what KuneKune education is all about - learning more about this incredible breed of pigs. If you are on the shy side and prefer not to speak openly in front of everyone, we got you. Therefore, for those who do not wish to speak openly, there is also a chat box, where I will read your question to the group, and we will get the answers as a group for you. I do not disclose who the question comes from unless it is someone whose microphone may not be working well.

Unlike other organizations, you are free to discuss whenever you have a question. We don't hold all the questions to the end. As a result, it is more of an open forum-type meeting. While IKKPS offers a ton of relevant and helpful membership benefits, this one alone is worth joining IKKPS. So, we invite you to join us.
