6-28-2016 - A special post for our "little" record breaker of 2016!
Wilma's Boy, one of our unregistered percentage Kiko bucklings, grabbed our attention from the day he hit the ground! On March 21st his birth weight tied with the BF Farm record holder (2014's Starbuck) for biggest baby buckling. His average daily gain (ADG) was the highest at 30, 60, & 90-days in his contemporary group. We were hoping to get him into one of the Buck Tests, but he was born a little late & was too young to enter. In true Wilma's Boy fashion, he was our 1st buckling sold for 2016! Didn't get a chance to share on Facebook because we got a call the day after we posted on the website, they came out the next day to look at him, & were out here the next day to pick him up! Good job Wilma & Klondyke! A BIG thank you to the Maddox family of Centre, AL for purchasing our BIG boy!
Here he is on May 15th. We didn't get a chance to get a more recent picture, but he was almost as big as some of our yearling Does (from his side of the fence in the buck pen) before he left. You can check out Wilma's info & Klondike's pedigree on the website. You can also check out his contemporaries. We are working on pricing or who will be consigned to which sale in 2017.
6-24-2016 - It's a boy! Our 1st BF Farm Black Hereford bull calf was born today! #11 is out our homozygous Black Hereford Cow "Bright Eyes" (R&R Miss Moon) & by our Black Hereford bull Hercules (KNG 98/3). He is all black with white only on his face & a little on his ears. He weighed in at an even 58Lbs! #11 is a Black Dynasty grandson!
You can check out the rest of his sire & dam's pedigree on our website
6-11-2016 - The last BF Farm kid of 2016 has arrived! First time mother Bambi is being very attentive to her single buckling. He is black/tan/white, blue eyes, & weighed in at 7Lbs & 2ozs!
Congratulations Bambi & Klondike! You can check out their pedigrees on our website.
6-2-2016 - You can tell by the expression on her face that our Purebred Kiko Doe, Audrey, is one proud 1st time mother! Audrey had a single doeling this morning here at BF Farm. She is black, tan, & white. She also has beautiful blue eyes like her mother & sire (Klondyke). This big bouncing baby girl weighed in at 6 Lbs 8 ozs!
You can check out Audrey & Klondyke's pedigrees on our website. We have also begun to post 30 & 60-Day EPDs for this year's Kiko Kid Crop! Feel free to look at their numbers so far!
5-24-2016 - Our Guinea Fowl finally hatched their keets! It is hard to get a count because they squat down & hide in the grass. We have seen around 8 so far.
