I band my goats with the same bander I use on my calves, the result is the same. Some of the calves nuts are almost as big as a base ball. I have to get behind them in a chute, with the help of gravity, and get one testicle at a time in the band. It is nice to have a helper to hold the tail and watch the poop chute as well. Last year my brother was on an antelope hunt on a big cattle ranch in West Texas. The cow boys were going to sell a bull, they didn't want to give away their genetics so they had a really large bander they put on the bull. So that being said, 4 months is fine to band. My vet recommends giving tetnus vaccines at that time as well,if you haven't done so already.
Adios, Denny
