HERD SIRES

Natural Breeding & Artificial Insemination

Our current herd sires are pictured below with some brief information. We also produce kids by means of Artificial Insemination from well known, and sometimes rare semen straws from legendary Kikos' past.

Honcho

HONCHO'S KEEPER

Honcho's Keeper is a son of Goliath's Imprint (aka Boss), a full brother to Goliath's Keeper, and the grandson of Goatex Goliath (the largest of the originally imported bucks). His dams side is also impressive. She was a daughter of Tay Onyx (a son of Tasman Zoro) and granddaughter of Sunboy 117 (Loverboy). Honcho has been producing offspring here since late 2019 and since then he has become a fundamental part of our herd. He has already produced a few bucks that have went on to sire herds of their own. He is also producing top quality does that have all inherited his propensity for muscle development, good feet, parasite resistance, and overall hardiness. We have several of his daughters in our breeding program and so far they are showing fantastic mothering abilities and have nice udders as well. Both sons and daughters alike have had impressive confirmation, nice square chest, and have had consistent heavy weaning weights. They also have that thick, muscled rear that is so hard to get on a Kiko. As they grow and mature, they become phenomenal grazers and foragers and despite their size, they maintain body condition better, and with less input than many lines we've worked with. Honcho has sons and daughters performing well in herds as far southwest as Texas, as far north as Wisconsin and New York, and as far south east as FL. His daughter, Legacy was the highest selling doe at the 2023 MPI in WV. In any state, they all seem to adjust well to the different climates and management styles.

WARSON

In 2019 we were blessed to purchase the two high selling does at the Cream of the Crop in Indiana. They were both purebreds and both surrogate mothers to some pretty special and rare embryos. It was a pretty exciting day when Warson was born. His sire was Warsaw, a name well known by just about anyone that knows some history about the breed. The parasite resistance that he is most known for was another trait that we wanted to focus on in our herd. Warson nursed from his surrogate mother for 90 days and from birth and without creep feeding or special attention we watched as he grew because we wanted to see what he was capable of, especially once we weaned him as this is a stressful time for kids. His parasite resistance is impressive, and we are very happy with his overall confirmation, not to mention his great feet. Now, we are beginning to see how well he can pass those traits on to his offspring. He sired his first kids in the fall of 2020, and they were born in April of 2021. We have retained several does from his 2022 kid crop and gave him a line-up of our top foundation does for his 2022 breeding season. We are thoroughly impressed with what we have seen this far out of Warson. He is producing nothing short of what we were hoping to see out of him, and passing to the next generation, the traits that Kikos are so well known for.

BANK ROLL aka MONEY

We'd also like to introduce Bank Roll aka Money. We purchased him at the 2022 Cream of the Crop Sale in Indiana where he was the high selling buck, and actually the highest selling kiko of the sale. He is a son of Sunboy 117 (Loverboy) and we are happy to be adding that line so close up in our production here. Since we brought him to the farm so late in the year, we unfortunately only had one unbred doe awaiting his arrival. After his quarantine though he went straight to work without wasting time. 

In 2023, we gave Money a slighly larger group of does that we thought might compliment his genetic characteristics and we are currenty watching those kids grow and mature. As we collect data we will know more but we are really happy with the size and conformation of the kids we have seen so far. Money was doe heavy this year, about 70% and we are looking forward to seeing how the kids mature.
