I have cut them as old as 6. They do settle and if they weren't aggressive before they will not get worse, but better. This is a good way to give an animal a new life. I've done several at around 4.

There's a saying in horses, good stallions make great geldings. Applies to goats too. Make sure that you have a vet doing the procedure. There is a risk of some serious bleeding if not done properly. Callicrate banding where there is a large band put in place and left for awhile before the testicles are cut works very well but any surgical castration works. Usually there is at least one stitch involved to keep things from bleeding.
