Kiko Goats :

"The Kiko Goat originated from New Zealand by crossing feral goats with dairy goats in the 1980s. Kiko is actually the Māori word for flesh or meat. They were developed for fast growth, survivability with little input from the producer and their hardiness." (Wikipedia)

When we researched the various meat-goat breeds, we were particularly impressed with the Kiko's reputation for parasite resistance, maternal instincts, general hardiness, and low-maintenance traits.   We have never had to provide assistance during kidding, and utilize a forage-based feeding program with great results!  For more information, please visit the National Kiko Registry site
