Just a quick query how do most people go about wethering their bucks if they need to retire them (and want to keep them as wether pets)...
Do most go the surgical route?
In our case it will be our Nigerian Buck after a season or two of breeding so he will be 1-2 yrs old....
(are even the adult minis small enough to use a sheep or cattle bander on?)....

I know that most people dont keep bucks, that arent being used for breeding.... but if I decide I want to stop breeding but want to keep him for a pet, what do people reccommend for wethering a mini buck (he is registered)....

California bander, it really easy to use. A cattle bander would probably be large enough as well. On adult bucks I cut the sack off about an inch below the band about 10 days after banding.
