Ok Ive been wondering about this and want some honest opinions on what you all would do. Ok I have some people lined up wanting wethers when my does start kidding. The one guy wants a bottle baby so I usually keep them for the first two to three weeks and then sell them after they are disbudded and stuff. Ok here is my question. Would you band a baby this young before he leaves. This person said he would do it later but would you trust someone to do that. Cause I only sell my wethers for $50 what if he takes it home doesnt band it then he has a buck for $50. I know it wouldnt have papers but still I dont want to sell something as a pet and then they use it as a breeder. Cause there is a reason that Im wethering it to begin with. I dont send many bucks off my farm. I think out of all the kids last year one went out of here as a buck. So what do you all think, hope I made sense.
