There are lots of great reasons for choosing Kikos, and they all go back to the beginning. The original development of the Kiko breed was focused on producing goats for the market using the least inputs. Solid decisions were made with facts, not emotions, and breeding decisions included selecting for production traits, not showroom glamour. Kikos outperform other breeds where it counts—in your pocket.
