Has anyone every had an older buck castrated? We are thinking of having Homer castrated. Just searching on the web I've read differing opinions on it. Some are saying banding (with larger bands for cattle) is the least painful, even on and older buck. Others say no way, and to have a vet surgically castrate. We are planning on calling the vet for his input on monday. I obviously have no experience either way, so I thought I'd ask around here to see what others have done in the meantime. BTW, Homer is just 8 months old today and approx 80-90 pounds.
