Re: How old is too old to wether?
I had a buck castrated by the vet, and he was too old. He was convinced that he was still a billy, even though he was 3-4 months old when cut. And he was a problem child when the goats came into heat. With bucks that were cut younger, they just never paid attention to the girls. He was a pet, so we didn't want him for dinner, but he was a nuisance too. Has anyone else had the issue of a cut buck thinking that he is the herd buck? He didn't have the odor, but he mounted the girls, and wanted to fight for dominance, which he couldn't win against the real herd buck.
