Hybrid Vigor

We’re in the peak of breeding season and our commercial and registered bucks are almost all in new homes where they will be improving herds of Kikos as well as commercial operations. For other Kiko herds it’s a chance to add some MRG genetics that have done so well for so many to help with parasite resistance, growth and maternals. So far we’ve sent registered bucks to PA, MD, NY and SC. Our commercial bucks have mostly been purchased by new and repeat customers throughout the Mountain State. We only have 3 bucks left if you’re still in need of a quality buck, please let us know.

Several of these customers are buying Kiko bucks to cross over their Boer does. We always get reports back on how thrifty and lively the kids are at birth and how they seem to chase their dams down for milk when they are born. Some have even said that this is an improvement over their Boer kids that have laid in the pen for 3 days after birth before getting up and moving around. This post isn’t meant to bash Boers as I know they are a few good ones out there too.

For the first time, we have sold a registered Kiko buck to a Savanna breeder to cover their Savanna does. He happens to be the biggest Kiko buck at his age that we have raised so far and is out of Sky High Kiss My Spot over a HEMI daughter. We are expecting great things out of the cross that our new customer in NY is experimenting with. A lot of folks are buying Savanna bucks and crossing them over their Kiko does and it seems to be working well. I have every reason to believe these folks will be successful using our Kiko buck over their Savanna does.

He seems to be enjoying his new job. Stay tuned………..

Kiko Goat Delivery

GA

 

When we selected 3 bucks out of our 2013 kid crop this year we never expected to sell all 3 of them on the same day. Starting this afternoon we will be heading South delivering goats along the East Coast. Deals were made for each of the 3 bucks on different days but we were able to arrange for the delivery all during the same trip. This saves us time and saves our customers time and money.

Our first delivery will actually be for the last sale of the 3 goats. We will be delivering him to Southern West Virginia. We made a deal for the sale of the first buck to Georgia. Once we knew we were heading South, we started advertising that delivery would be available along our route during this time frame. Shortly thereafter, our second sale was made to Virginia. And finally last night, we were contacted by a customer in WV who wanted our remaining buck.

We are excited about the trip but no as much about the weather. We’re excited to get more of our quality genetics dispersed to other herds to make positive impacts on them. We are also glad to be able to stop and visit with some friends along the way.
