If I plan on selling. I'll tattoo them at about 8 weeks old or around weaning time. If I plan on keeping them...sometimes i'll do it at weaning or wait awhile. I like to try and get it done by the time they're yearlings if they're keeper animals.
I'm going to be tattooing my kids by the time they are 7-9 weeks old depending on the kid.
I raise AGS and NDGA registered Nigerian Dwarf goats in the beautiful state of Arizona. My herd name is Desert Springs and my herd includes 4 Does and 1 buck at the moment.
