In the future, I'd like to add some meat goats, when I fence in our big pasture. I want to have something hardy so I've been looking at Kiko goats. They appear to be tougher than Boers, but are really hard to find in my area, and are expensive. I thought about getting a few percentage does, and using a Kiko buck to create "BoKi's". Does anyone have experience with this? Also, I would like to butcher myself. Do any of you do this? Any tips? I read that most people use a .22 pistol. What do you use? Also, what is the prime age ranch to butcher for best quality. Thanks!
