Purebred Kiko Bucks For Sale

Looking for a buck?
Look carefully and invest wisely. This is one of the most important decisions you will make for the future of your herd, and the future of the Kiko breed. 
Realize that the buck's genetics are in 100% of your next year's offspring. 
Know the breeder's culling policy - what traits they select for.  Inquire about the sire and dam of the bucks you are considering - parasite resistance, birth order, breeding history , conformation (particularly udder and hoof), temperament, and mothering skills.

There is a possibility that this yearling buck will be available for the fall breeding season.
We have held him back because he just keeps surprising us.

He was born to Agatha (produced the highest performing doeling this year with an ADG of .67 - outperforming 83% of the bucklings!) - a quadruplet out of our favorite NZ doe Mystery (9 yrs old, 300% kidding percentage, 21 kids on the ground, dam raising triplets this year) and Cobalt - a triplet - who has historically given us the highest performing bucklings.

He was Agatha's first kidding, born unassisted at night and found dry and nursing in the morning the week our weather plummeted to -23F and held. We did not have temperatures over zero for a solid month.  He did not see the sun or a blade of grass until he was nearly six months old. His initial growth was impacted, but he was vigorous and dam-raised when many of his kid crop were pulled and bottle-raised. He lost the tip of one ear to frostbite. His ADG was .36 under those harsh conditions.  A respectable gain when considering how many calories were spent staying warm. His weight at weaning was 38.2 - small by our standards - but respectable in comparison to many other herds.

We culled 95% of the bucklings last year for growth - which was directly related to climate.
We put Tundra over the fence with the mature bucks to fend for himself, and then kind of forgot about him. It was a half-hearted experiment to see if the early challenges would be a permanent hindrance.  
He is not supplemented - he eats hay, and has limited pasture, so we didn't offer him any advantages to compensate.

He never showed signs of vitamin D deficiency which was common in juvenile livestock in the region as a result of our unseasonable weather, nor was he supplemented  (A &D injections are fairly standard in our climate, and became part of our kidding protocol in 2018.) He was coccidia resistant. He has never been wormed, nor has his 3 1/2 year old dam. His 7 year old sire has been wormed once.  His temperament is outstanding.  His lines are our best...and so when he started a growth spurt this spring, we thought twice about freezer camp. He will be moving onto pasture for the summer with less competition for food.  We would like to see more development in his hind end and muscling before considering him for breeding. 

We have some excellent registerable buckling prospects
to consider, and will be retaining some to prove as yearlings.
