Superior Genetics Annual Online Kiko Sale
The First Online Kiko Sale
In 2019 Kiko breeders will have the opportunity to attend nearly 20 events across the nation. For the first time in the history of the breed buyers may find themselves picking and choosing events due to distance and timing like never before. One new event for 2019 hopes to solve that problem for many potential buyers by bringing the sale to the comfort of your own home. Triple M Goats and M. R. Goats are stepping into uncharted waters this March. They will be hosting the first ever online Kiko sale called The Superior Genetics Online Kiko Sale which they plan to make an annual event. Harvey Plus Auctions, a third-party auction service, will be handling the confidential bidders’ numbers and sale platform. This proven sale platform, layout, and bidding structure is based on a successful system already used in the cattle, sheep, Boer goat, and Spanish goat industries.
This year’s guest consignors will be Boulder Hills Farm, Good As Gold Kikos, PJM Goats, Pleasant Ridge Goats and USA Kikos. This sale will bring together reputable consignors from across the United States offering approximately 18 does and 12 lots of semen and/or embryo straws. The goats will be presented in the most accurate and buyer friendly way possible. With hopes of giving buyers more than enough information to feel comfortable and confident purchasing online. Pictures will show multiple angles of the animal and short videos will show the buyer how the animal moves. A picture of the animal’s eyelids will also allow you to determine the animals FAMACHA score which can be linked to his internal parasite load. Potential buyers are encouraged to contact the consignors for any additional information.
Online auctions offer a very unique feature for buyers. Buyers can bid and pay using a computer or mobile device through a simple online registration process. Following the sale, you will be emailed a digital receipt and contacted by the seller to initiate the pickup or drop off process. Every buyer wishes they could go back and buy their second favorite lot because their favorite lot was later in the sale and went out of their price range. Online sales allow you to bid on all animals at once and the auction will not close until no bids have been received for 5 minutes, on any of the lots. This will keep you from passing on a goat you would buy to save up for one later in the sale order.
The hosts have also strategically picked the sale date early in the calendar year before the CUSKGA, Mountain Premier Invitational, NKR Spotlight and Elite Genetics Sale. This will allow consignors to deliver animals to the various sales they plan to attend.
Consignors will also facilitate drop off for animals purchased in another consignor’s region of the United States by working together as a group. Drop off will also be available along the consignor’s routes to and from any sale they attend. Animals can also be picked up on the seller farms, giving buyers multiple free and hassle-free opportunities to get their animals.
