We do not castrate bucklings for sale until they are confirm to be purchase as a wethers and not early that 8 weeks of age. We did a lot of research and we believe that early castration can cause health problems. The veterinarian recommendation is to castrate bucklings between 12 weeks to 6 months of age. This helps urinary tract to be develop and prevents blockage with urinary stones.
The later castration is beneficial for bone and muscle development. Hormones are needed to do that.
We can honestly say that bucklings are very sweet and friendly. It takes months for the" buck smell" to develop. It is usually around 6 months of age and it is gone when the buckling is castrated.
