Ive seen several posts about boer wether bucks as a head sire and i was wondering what that means because i know a wether is a castrated male so it couldn't possibly be used for breeding? Any help on explaining the term wether buck?

It is a bit confusing! A wether buck is basically a buck that is best at producing wethers. There are also breeding stock bucks, which are used to throw breeding does and bucks to continue on the breeding, and wether bucks for producing show wethers. Wether sires tend to be longer, more shallow, and pack muscle on like tubular machines. Breeding bucks are larger, deeper, and have more fat and skin covering.
