Kiko goats originated from Whalers in the South Pacific who released goats on the islands to help ensure a reliable food supply in such remote areas. In the 1960's, after 150 or so years of natural selection, some of these goats were captured by the New Zealanders and put through an intensive 30 year breeding program where they were crossed with with best features of different breeds too create a superior commercial goat. These goats are bred to be hardy and low maintenance with strong maternal ability and parasite resistance. This breed of goat is relatively new to Canada and rare in BC so our goat goal is to enable small producers to start crossing with Kiko genetics.
