The National Kiko Registry continues “thinking outside the fence” while developing
plans for its 2012 Spotlight Auction, scheduled for May 19 in Springfield, Mo. The sale is part of the NKR-sponsored Ozark Empire Goat Conference that will be held May 18-19, 2012, at the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds.
First off, the bucks will have their own sale to be held at 1 p.m. The sale will be limited to 10 head with a maximum age of two-years-old by sale day. Billed as the NKR Elite Kiko Buck Sale, this sale will be the first auction of its kind in the history of the U.S. meat goat industry. Producers will have the opportunity to offer 10 of the best representatives of the Kiko breed in a high-profile, highly promoted arena with these top herdsires going to the highest bidders. Nominees must be of the highest quality, free of defects and health issues. Photos of the 10 nominees, their pedigrees, accomplishments and owners will be featured on the NKR website as well as in other national advertising. These bucks will be DNA-tested and NKR-registered.
Immediately following the buck sale will be the Spotlight Auction, a doe-only sale that will feature approximatey 110 NKR-registered New Zealand, purebred and
percentage/GeneMasterTM does. Buyers can purchase the buck they want then put together the does of their choice for a perfect foundation herd or addition to their current breeding program.
