All of our Kiko goats are located in Castle Rock, Washington
We decided years ago to buy goats to rid our property of the invading weeds and brush (we got tired
of spraying with chemicals several times a year). After much research we found the Kiko breed and
were immediately intrigued by them. Kikos are a hardy self sufficient breed from the Mountains of
New Zealand, they need less maintenance than other breeds of goats. They require minimal
wormings and rarely need their hooves trimmed. Kiko does are excellent mothers known for their
ease of kidding. Kiko kids are small at birth but alert within minutes, they gain weight rapidly and
are very early maturing. Kiko's need minimal supplemental feeding, often doing very well on range
forage alone. Kikos are an exceptionally tough breed of meat goat that don't require a shelter
(although they do seem to appreciate one). Kiko's are exceptional browsers and do well on all types of
forage. Cattle & horse ranchers often rotate their pastures with Kiko goats to clean up the weeds that
other animals won't eat. Kiko's have straight or dished profiles and medium sized ears. The bucks
have stunning horns that sweep back & outward.
All of our goats have been purchased from breeders with healthy herds that were tested CAE and CL
negative. We run a closed herd and they are all current on their CD/T vaccinations. Our goats are on
pasture in the spring, summer and early fall, the fields consist of grass meadows, wooded areas and
brush covered hillsides. with a year round creek. We supplement them with alfalfa (that we harvest
ourselves on our Ranch in eastern Oregon) and oat/pea hay during the winter. We run a small select,
quality group of AKGA 100% New Zealand ancestry registered Kiko's of outstanding bloodlines, good
dispositions and correct conformation. We offer a few registered kids for sale every year. The low
maintenance & hardiness of the tough Kiko breed is perfect for us. Our goats are well suited as
breeding stock, pack goats, pets, foragers and/or meat production. We feel that overall the Kiko breed
outperforms every other breed of meat goat. We are concentrating on breeding Kikos that have lots of
color, are meaty fast growers and possess good temperaments. We strive to produce goats that
successfully represent this exceptional breed. In summary, Kiko goats need less wormings, less hoof
trimmings, have fewer disease, respiratory & kidding problems, they grow rapidly, have sound feet,
are very parasite resistant and need minimal intervention input.
The American Kiko Goat Association is the Kiko registry that we feel fits us the best, so all of our
goats are registered with them. The AKGA requires DNA testing on every purebred and 100% New
Zealand so you can be assured that every goats parentage is as correct as possible.
We offer high quality, well bred registered goats for sale at very affordable prices, we will sell the
goats unregistered as well.

Why we chose the Kiko breed & reasons why you should consider them too:
Less maintenance than other breeds resulting in less time and imput needed from owner
Aggressive foragers, needing little or no shelter, excellent free range goats
Kids that are small at birth but are fast-growing and vigorous
Parasite tolerant, which means few or no wormings required
Maternal instincts that are exceptional, it is rare for a Kiko doe to have trouble kidding
Few if any hoof trimmings needed, hoof problems are rare even in our wet Pacific Northwest climate
Kiko are long lived fertile goats that tend to produce longer than other breeds
Kiko's possess valuable traits for commercial meat production
Kiko goats have thinner bones & better bone to meat ratio than a Boer, it has been reported that a
Kiko will yield more meat than a Boer of the same live weight.
Our goats are handled daily, they bed in the barn every night. We try to
imprint the every kid at birth so they will be more trusting of people.

Kiko Goats make wonderful pack animals
The two wethers, Bear and Jaxon, pictured below were purchased from us in March 2017 to be trained as pack goats.
They went on their first hunting trip this fall. Both wethers are sired by JCP Tejas Bandito, IAD Bear is out of MEW
Stella and IAD Jaxon is out of MEW Twizel. Thanks so much Joe for the great pictures, we look forward to hearing
about many more hunting and camping trips with these boys.
"Because of lack of time to do
everything we want and need to
do we have cut back on our goat
operation. We have sold both
bucks and have only kept a few
does to keep the pastures free of
brush and weeds. All 6 does that
we kept are reg. 100% New
Zealand ancestry goats. Several
are bred so we should have a few
kids born in early 2019."
