I would start by saying that I have been lucky to use some very good sires. I would also share that I have tried way more sires than most other breeders that I know and that is part of why I have been fortunate enough to find some good sires. Some sires are stepping stones and some sires are foundation stones. I think it takes different sorts of stone to build a stone house but most importantly, a vision for what type of house you want to live in.
SKY Blue’s Copyright: NZ Purebred with the genetics of Kiko Performance Royalty.
"Blue's Copyright". Pictured on pasture only. Size, type, conformation, spring of rib and very worm resistant. A hard forager and an effective and hard working breeder
“Blue’s Copyright”, a Full NZ Purebred, is sired by Blue’s Son (A 50%Genetic son of Money Maker) and his Dam, a Daughter of Lightin’, is a full sister to Titan. Titan is the sire of Hammer.
Both Hammer and Titan held records for Average Daily Gain in a performance test. In fact, Titan held the record at the Valley Forge Test in GA until that record was broken by his son Hammer. Hammer's record was broken during the summer of 2014 in West Virginia. The current record holder is PJM WV Winner. The next 3 highest ADGs are all sired by Blue's Copyright or PJM Copyrights Bluejay and from different does.
Blue’s Copy Right is a very wide and well made buck. He has great width over his shouders and has great body length. He sires very fast growing and well made kids. He has black feet and dark skin and a blue-red roan colored coat.
August 2014 Update: Copyright sires four record breakers and winner of WV Test. Blue's Copyright has sired four buck kids which have beaten Hammer's record on test and several who have equaled it. This shows genetic progress in the kiko by using proven performance tested genetics and applying intense selection pressure.
June 2015 Update: Copyright grandsons are out performing again in 2015 - He had a grandson have the thickest loin-Eye area in his class in the 2014 PA test. In 2015, he has 3 grandson gaining over 0.8 lbs per day in WV Ram and Buck Test. October 2015: His grand sons took the top three places in the WV Test and one made the Top-Ten selection in the MD test of 2015.
PJM Copyright Crossfire WV 16
PJM Copyright Crossfire returned from the WV 2016 test and was examined along with the other 7 goats I sent. He and his half-brither Doemaker were selected to stay a little longer for further evaluation. Crossfire finished the test as the thickest REA from about 40 bucks at the test. What is more amazing about him is that 2 three quarter brothers (Same dam with sires 50% related to Crossfire's sire) both finished as the top REA bucks in their year's test - 2014 in PA and in 2016 it was "Crosscut" that did the same in WV. This buck carries the genetics for heavy muscle and we are pursuing that.
UPDATE: Crossfire is the sire of the first and second placed for ADG in the WV Test of 2017 at the second weigh-in at 42 days.
PJM Legacy Rights
PJM Legacy Rights came through the Maryland 2016 test with no treatments or dewormings. His FAMACHA held dark through the test. His ADG was 17th out of almost 100 goats. He has looks and substance. He contributed to our herd in 2017 and sired kids in our kid crop 0f 2018. Sired by MJI Blue Legacy and out of a Copyright daughter. His dam is a full sister PJM Tru Test who was a Maryland finalist and she is a half sister (from the same dam) to Harvest Jack who was a Maryland Finalist also. This buck has pedigree and performance comparable to the best sires.
Young Sire "Hard as Nails" used for 2017 kids
Western Maryland Test 2015 PJM Kid makes Top Ten selection again by being "Hard As Nails"!
PJM Hard as Nails was bred for 2017 kids to some very nice does, including a "Generator" doe. I am looking forward to seeing his kids. Hard As Nails held a FAMACHA OF 1 for the entirety of the 2015 Maryland Test. One of only two bucks to do so out of about 100 bucks on the test.
CVK Apollos A22
Apollo as a young buck.
Apollos A22 - Fall 2016
CVK Apollos A22 Joined our breeding program in 2016. Bred at the successful Kiko breeding farm of Kendell Barnes, he formerly stood at BWP for Wes Pinneo and his daughters excelled at Wes' farm. I have seen a lot of his progeny and they are excellent looking goats. Apollo is sound and proud.
CVK Apollos A22's sire's pedigree has the double bred Onyx "WMB Apollo" and Sunboy 112 and General Patton on top - with Sinatra (Generator, Lightnin, Titan and Hammer) and Money Maker (Victoria Farm Puddin) descendents on his dam lines. Apollo's A22's dam is a Hammer daughter who rasied triplets for Kendell Barnes as a nine and ten year old doe. She is bred back again for 2017 kids as an 11 year old doe. Her dam was a Titan Daughter out of a Generator daughter.
I expect this buck to complement the PJM breding program really very well and I look forwad to his 2017 kids.
Former Sires at PJM Goats
MJI RCs Blue Legacy
In 2015 Legacy came to PJM Goats and we used him to produce some very nice kids. Two of his buck kids tied for joint second place at the 2016 WV Buck Test. We have retained some of his progeny to use in our program and he now stands with James Sanders. We expect him to continue to contribute very positively to the Kiko breed.
CPK Rooster Cogburn: 2008-2016
HKF Flip was sired by HKF Little Joe. He was a thick goat with muscle like his sire Hemp's Golden Boy. Little Joe's dam was a "Big Boy" daughter who was out of a double bred Goliath doe "Harriet". Flip's bottom side shows his Dam was also a grand daughter of "Harriet". His maternal grand dam was sired by JFK Noble who combined Tasman Aristocrat and Terminator genetics. HKF Flip has correct legs and tight black feet. He is well made and holds a dark FAMACHA through the year. He made a good cross on our stock and expect him to contribute very positively to the breeding program of Steven Tenedidios of New York at his new home.
Rooster came to us at the very end of his breeding career and we were happy to have him spend his last summer with us. He fleshed up and shed out to look like the power house he was.
CPK Rooster Cogburn in old age.
Rooster spent nearly all his breeding career with Shane Hesterman and Shane liked him well enough to base his line breeding program on him. We used him on some of our best does in his last year of breeding in 2016.
