Okay I know this topic might be controversial, so please remember I am posting it too gather information, Friendly advice is appreciated So I have a baby goat and want to get him disbudded. I first looked in to people in the area who raised goats hoping I could pay somebody too do it. No luck. Second I went and priced a disbudding iron 200, firstly the only one I can find is for cows and seems too big. Secondly I feel that is a lot of money to spend on something I will only use once. I called my livestock vet, he recommended the caustic paste, which I have read is "dangerous,useless" to name the nicer words which it has been called. So what to do? Any suggestions?0 I do not want to leave his horns. He will be a better pet with out them but most importantly I have heard that dehorning is a horrible process and it is kinder to the goats to disbud them when they are young then to take a chance they will break a horn and require this procedure later in life Thanks in advance for the kind, non judgmental, informative answers.
