A lady emailed me and asked about disqualifications in dairy bucks. Can anyone help me answer her questions? She writes: In getting into the dairy goats, we were first told not the purchase any dairy buck that had any split or division at all in his scrotal sac, that this in turn had something to do with udders in does. These kids are showing bucks & they ask me what is allowed & not allowed & I certainly am not an expert on dairy goats. Most of the time our judges are meat goat judges as we can't afford to pay separate judges for boer, dairy, & other breeds. Sometimes the judges ask me & I would like to say one way or the other what is right or accepted I am hoping you can shed some light on this matter for us or please tell me where to go to find our answers. Here are my questions: Can a dairy buck have a split in his scrotal sac? In the boers anywhere from a 1-2" split is allowed & looks like a lazy w If they cannot have a split in the sac, is it a disqualification to have one? Or if they can have a split how much is allowed? We had a young girl show with us this weekend & had a nice young buckling in the 3-6 month class, but he has about 1/2-3/4" split in his scrotal sac. We had two other nubian bucks that showed, one buckling 0-3 & one buck 12-18 & neither of them had a split in their sac & they placed over the other buck, but an explanation was not given so we don't know if it was because of the scrotal sac or not.
