I was hoping someone could provide some clarification about this. My husband has read a few books that suggest that naturally polled bucks should not be used to breed as their kids are often sterile and/or hermaphrodites. However, from what I am reading online, it seems this tends to occur in some breeds more than others (Saanen for one). I'm also reading that breeding a polled buck is fine so long as he is heterozygous for polled (one of his parents had horns) and so long as he is only bred to does born with horns. I am assuming these are the recommendations in order to avoid a homozygous polled kid (which is when you could have the problem with sterility or gender issues). So . . . anyone have thoughts or experience with this?
