When do bucks start to lose fertility? What is the oldest buck you would buy?

Just trying to plan ahead for the future. A local breeder has really nice goats and is always selling bucks in the fall to bring in new blood. One is older, but if he has a good chance of still performing I’d be interested in adding his genetics.

Thanks for the link! For some reason the search function doesn’t work well for me (could be user error).

And lol about the legs giving out first. So a 6.5 or 7 yr old buck should (if cared for properly) have another couple good years in him then.

I’ve got to see what this years crop of babies looks like to figure out whether I keep or sell the bucks I currently have.
