I have two situations that we are currently pondering, and wondered if any of you could shed some expertise and experience on them.

1.) We have a few boer goat bucklings who are the following ages:
7 months
6 months
11 weeks
What age is safe to band them at? &/or to Castrate them at?

2.) At what age &/or weight is best to process them at? If they are not banded or castrated, I am guessing before they are a year old, but wasn't sure what experiences you have had, as in the past we usually either sold them for 4H & FFA, breeders for other herds, or fixed them and processed them after a year old.
