    I currently have two 1 year old goats (brothers). We've raised them since they were bottle kids and then had them banded. However, I recently found out at their vet appointment that one of them is still partially intact. I've scheduled him to be surgically castrated. I've struggled for the...
  2. Goat Management
    As some of you know, I’ve not had goats for very long. Currently my ‘wether’ is acting very aggressive, and humping Betty (our second goat) a lot. I know they do this out of dominance as well, but I expected wethers to be a little less... like this? He rams into Betty any chance he gets, and has...

    Hi, I’m in need of advice. I’ve owned this particular buck for roughly 3 years now and am having difficulty with him. He’s always been aggressive towards everyone and has even attacked me and my cattle dog, which has left me pretty scared of him. As time has gone on we’ve had to keep him...

    I have a buck who has been fine and sweet in the past when it was time to go on dates and would even leave them be if they weren’t interested, but this year he is very rough with the ladies.

    One of my bucks, Cullen knocked one of his scurs off this morning. He was left with about an inch of bloody stump on the top of his head. It is not bleeding very much, not even running down his face. I dabbed a little blu- kote on it and put some wonder dust on a little later. Immediately...
  7. Goat Frenzy
    Last Friday I picked up my first Kinder bucks. They are each a year old and actually, they are full brothers too, so I will be adding (or replacing) an unrelated buck further down the line. Their names are Phantom and Cullen. Cullen is the one with the white eyebrows and Phantom is the one...

    Hi. I'm very new to goats, I've had a wether and pregnant doe only three months. I will be keeping any girls she has and purchasing another doeling in the spring to quickly have my whole herd of does. My original plan was to have only 3-4 does to provide my family all our dairy needs. As far...
  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    We got our two crypt orchid Nigerian Dwarf goats in May as bottle babies at 2 weeks old. We had them neutered at 5 weeks old since the doctor said it would be wise to do it young. Now our goats are around 5 months old and exhibiting what I assume is "buck behavior." They are mounting each other...
