At A DEC
Capretto, we decided that adding Summa (a Kiko from Lost Acres in
Vermont) to our herd of Boers would be beneficial for our
future. We had our first Kiko/Boer cross kids born Oct
2007. Their growth from birth to weaning has been equal to our
average full blood Boer kids. We had one of Bill's does produce
a set of 88% kiko doelings this 2011 kidding season. One of
these kids (Abby) is displayed on the kids page.
Wild Bill has bred all of Summa's daughters fall 09. We expect
to have some high percentage kids this spring 2011. We had three
75% Kiko doelings born this 2011 kidding season.
add a Kiko:
Kiko has proven to be more parasite resistant than any
other breed of goat.
Kiko has less hoof problems.
Kiko does have little to no kidding problems.
Kiko kid is remarkably vigorous at birth and have a
rapid growth rate.
Kiko is an aggressive browser and will flourish with
minimum supplemental feeding.
Kiko is a very aggressive non-seasonal breeder.
