I have only had one goat wethered before and I had the vet remove them. He charges $75. Recently I have experienced a few kiddings and have decided to keep one of the boys. I know that some people band their kids themselves. I have banded my calves before but never a goat. I need to know what age I should apply band and also I am interested in opinions and info and what you think about banding and if I should do it or pay the $75 to have vet do it?
