Superior Genetics Annual Online Kiko Sale
In 2021 Kiko breeders will have the opportunity to attend nearly 20 Kiko sales across the United States. Buyers are now being forced to pick and choose which events to attend due to travel distance and busy work schedules. This is also restricting the genetics available to breeders across the country. Superior Genetics Online Sale hopes to solve that problem for many potential buyers by bringing the sale to the comfort of their own homes.
Triple M Goats and M. R. Goats will be hosting the online sale this March. 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 the system that we successfully used last year and is being used in the cattle, sheep, boer goat, and spanish goat industries. The guest consignors this year will be Boulder Hills Farm, PJM Goats, Chey View Kikos, Chapman Kikos, Hubbard Hill Kikos, USA Kikos and Rolling Meadows Farm. This sale will bring together reputable consignors from across the United States, offering approximately 15 does and 15 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 animal's FAMACHA score which can be linked to their 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 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.
Buyers can pay for their lots via mailed check, Paypal or credit card payment online!
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, and NKR Spotlight. This will allow consignors to deliver animals to the various sales they plan to attend.
Delivery of all goats in last year's sale were delivered to the buyers free of charge. Although we cannot guarantee that for this year's sale you can rest assured that all of the consignors will work diligently together to assist buyers in every possible way to minimize transportation costs.
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.

property is made by the seller or the auction company. Each potential bidder is responsible for
conducting his or her own independent inspections, investigations, inquiries and due diligence

6) AUTO EXTEND FEATURE - Please note when bidding, there is an auto-extend feature on
this online auction system. The auto-extend feature time frame is set by the auction company.
For this example the auto-extend feature is set at 5 minutes - If someone bids in the last 5
minutes immediately prior to the end of the auction, the online auction system will automatically
extend the bidding time for a 5 minute increment (and will continue to do so) until there is a 5
minute period (after the original closing time) where no one bids, then the auction will close.
This feature will leave the bidding open for all lots. This feature has been added to eliminate
sniping and to make the online bidding process fairer and to resemble a 'live' auction. Keep in
mind that seconds are not recorded with bid entries. A bid recorded at 5:30 and 40 seconds will
have a recorded bid time of 5:30. Bid & refresh immediately and often.
