It all depends, on how well cared for the buck is. He must be in good health.
If he isn't overly bred or his semen is collected constantly, he will last a long time. Can't say how long in years per say, that varies for each situation, but, I know some pretty old Does still going strong.

My first buck bred his does up until he died of old age at 10. His herd was anywhere from 5 to 65 does. No drop in fertility or kid quality.

I routinely had my dairy does kidding at 14 and milking up a storm. I want longevity in my animals, its what I breed for.
