In 2000 I got my first goats. They were very 12 high percentage Boer goats. I had owned cows
before but was new to goats. I didn't know of the need to worm them so often. I didn't know that I
had to teach new babies to nurse. I didn't know that they were so labor intensive. I went to school
I then bought a herd of 83 percentage Boers that were better but still had room for improvement.
It was around this time that I started reading about Kikos. I read of their increased fertility, increased
libido, high meat to bone ratio, good hooves, good motherability, and so on. That all sounded good,
but what really attracted me to the breed was the supposed "extreme hardiness" and "parasite
tolerance." Was it all hype, or was the Kiko really that much better?
I soon found and bought a purebred Kiko buck form JT Farms of Valdosta Ga. He greatly improved
the next generation of kids and then really improved them as mothers.
I soon bought several 100% New Zealand does. Wow. They raised their own babies, and were
great mothers. I have been sold on the Kiko ever since. As the slogan goes, "Kiko-The Hardy Meat
Will you ever have to worm or tend to a Kiko hooves or give a helping hand somehow?
Sure, Kikos can and do get wormy if overcrowded, and/or if having to eat low to the ground.
There hooves will occasionally need trimming. But overall, there is a huge difference
in the amount of care and labor necessary to raise Kikos.
If you are tired of having to constantly baby sit goats, you should try a Kiko. If you are interested in a
hardy, production meat goat, Get a Kiko !!
PS The dancing smiley men are annoying, but my daughter really likes them. lol
