Bel Canto Farm retains only the strongest boars to use in our breeding program. They must score at the top of the Kunekune breed standard for confirmation and personality traits. We require our boars to have exceptionally strong bone, wide shoulders, straight top-line, outstanding leg set and tracking, nice macho head with a broad snout, nice ear set, good eyes and curly tail. They must have the sweet, docile personality that makes the Kunekune a joy to have on the farm.
The sows in our breeding program are given the same scrutiny as the boars. We choose sows that carry strong traits in confirmation, personality, mothering abilities, ease of care, health and litter success rate. Sow lines include: Aria Giana, Jenny, Kereopa, Sally, Taru Taru, Wilsons Gina.
