        Still bottle feeding 4x a day, but it seems the more I research. .the more confused and unsure I am getting about their care!

        Know the buck will need to be castrated, but when & how, or should the vet do it? Horns, i think are out of the question now? What other mineral supplements do they need? Loose or block? Which hay is best for both? And on and on the questions go!

        What kind of milk and how much?

        I would band the buckling at 10 weeks or so. It's fairly easy to do, but if you don't feel comfortable, find a breeder that will do it for you.

        I would probably give alfalfa hay.

        Loose minerals free choice.

        If the horn buds still fit in the disbudding iron, you can get them disbudded.
