Because when you catch the issue later on, about a week or two later the born is pretty attached/big I guess you could say so you would have to burn longer to make them not grow any more. Or so I've read remember I don't reburn lol I just deal with the scurs which except for 2 does has always been these tiny little things. But I think my alpine boy should be reburned. My goodness he had HUGE horns already at a week old and I kinda knew I wasn't going to get them just right but if I can get my hands on him I'll show you what I mean. I know where he's going to end up so for sure no point in reburning him. He won't have sharp little horns so I won't loose the bid of the feed lot type guy so it is what it is.

Ahhh, ok! I burned them at 8 and 9 days old but the white one had buds the day he was born.He's a meat goat anyway so scurs are no big deal...I just hope I got hers!

Was the boy the alpine? I never seen horns so big on a week old before. The little girl SHOULD be ok. Girl horns seems to grow so much slower then the boys.

Do you give banamine before disbudding? If so, how much?

Banamine is 1cc per 100 lbs. I give it 30 minutes prior to disbudding.

Yes. For the really small doses, it is easier to use a 1cc syringe.
