Julie started raising goats with a partner in 2000 and we did vegetation management. Now as sole owner, Julie only does breeding of fine kiko goats.
We did contract grazing with our kiko goats for 21 years. They are a "do anything go anywhere" breed of goats . They excelled at this work.
We used herding dogs to manage the herd when they needed to be moved from one area to another. I did the herding dog training.
We had guardians from the beginning, but in 2004 we began breeding our own dogs. Anatolian , Akbash and Kangal were used for guardians. We never lost goats to predation when the dogs were in the fields.
I now do contract grazing on a much smaller scale and I do have contacts that may be able to help you outside of my scope. Please send me an email with your acreage, and location. Will do my best to get you to the right company.
Availability is limited and seasonal.
