A big CONGRATULATIONS to Brian Graves of Rocky Hill Kikos for the purchase of this awesome herdsire! We will miss having him in our line-up, but are looking forward to seeing the fantastic kikos he will add to the breed in the future.
RDH STRIKE GOLD
It is our hope, that Strike Gold will keep the great qualities found in his dam and sire alive and going strong for generations to come!
Yes, that's 73 pounds at weaning!! Growing very very well, with a weight at 11 months of 178 pounds!! Strike Gold is a product of an embryo flush and transfer. We loved the depth on ECR Black Gold. Doing a little digging into his history, we read that Terry Hankins, owner of Egypt Creek Ranch and breeder/owner of Black Gold, believed the best results with Black Gold were attained when crossed with ECR P77. The choice for a donor doe was narrowed to the P77 granddaughters here on Dean Hill. We have several daughters of Roho Grande, son of P77 and ECR Rusty, both offspring of Southwest Cisco. We chose our deepest Roho Grande doe to enchance the traits we were hoping to create. And we are excited that the pairing exceeded our expectations. The recip mom was one of our Kiko x Boer crosses. We bred him to a select few does last fall and his kids are arriving now. We are excited to bring these genetics to our farm. ECR Black Gold was the littermate brother to ECR Gloria and his dam was a full sister to Loverboy. We are seeing great birth weights and growth for the Strike Gold kids here now and are looking forward to more in late winter and early spring. His first kids offered for sale will be at the Elite Genetics sale in Batesville, MS in April 2018!
