Salmon Creek Ranch has 100% purebred AKGA* registered Kiko Goats with bloodlines going back to the original imports from New Zealand through Goats Unlimited stock. We also have a limited number of AKGA registered 100% New Zealand Kikos. Our goats are free to roam on over 400 acres of natural forage (certified organic) and we track EPD** data on all goats produced in order to align our breeding program as closely as possible to the original goals of the Kiko. That means, a goat that is an easy kidder, a good mother with plenty of milk, parasite resistant and relatively trouble free.  Our does kid unassisted in the pasture and kids are raised without supplements. We breed for meat production and occasionally, have stock for sale, either with AKGA registration or commercial grade (without papers). And, while it has nothing to do with the quality of the meat, we do like color in our Kikos, as you can see from our current herd sires, pictured above. Pedigrees and further details upon request. Delivery negotiable.

Salmon Creek Ranch Kikos: All our goats are 100% purebred AKGA* registered Kikos, along with a limited number of 100% New Zealands. Kikos are a meat goat from New Zealand ("Kiko" means "meat" in Maori.), which descend from goats first brought to the islands by Captain Cook. They are known to be particularly hardy, self-sufficient, parasite resistant, have fewer hoof problems and possess superb mothering skills. Such an independent animal was a perfect fit for our operation. As the health and well-being of our animals is a top priority, we keep our herd closed to outside animals and it is CL & CAE tested clear. We protect our goats from the many land and airborne predators in our area by a combination of Anatolian Shepherds (an ancient livestock guardian breed from Turkey) and electric fences.
