We are looking at a two year old buck. If he is wethered, can he make a decent packer. He is friendly, but all buck. He has bred several does and definitely knows his job. What can we expect--behavior, drive, agression, and anything else that might make a difference. We are new to packing with goats and could use the advice. Thanks in advance.

Here are a few links - I think the general idea is the same as with horses - a good stallion will make a great gelding, so if you have a buck who is well behaved and friendly, he should make a great wether.

And a few others that I can't seem to find. :|

It will take a few weeks to mellow the buck dominance, but if he is good temperament now then he should be as a wether. Its a matter of the testosterone in the bloodstream flushing out . 3-4 weeks should make a much different animal.
