Wondering the optimal age to butcher a goat and how long after wethering. He will be a year old in Feburary, we had planned on keeping him intact and selling later on. But his dad and 1/2 sibling have allergies and it may be genetic, so we have decided to cull him from the lines. I plan on wethering on the 31st. He went into full rut and is still peeing on his legs. I figure fatten him up a little and butcher, but I dont know if there is a certain age or not? Or optimal time to butcher after being wethered.
