First off, I am not starting this thread to debate whether castration is right or wrong or to discuss the methods in which to do it. I do castrate some of mine so I can keep them longer in the herd to process for goat meat. Here is my issue... this goat is different. I want to sell him as a pet or herdsire and not meat. He has really cool markings. So here are some things you may want to know to help me decide... 1. He is a mixed breed 2. He will be big 3. His mother is an awesome milk goat and father is an amazing meat goat 4. He is skitish right now because he is not bottlefed 5. There is a large market here for pets and meat but not herdsires So my question is what do you recommend? I would love to see him breed, I bet his babies would be amazingly beautiful but he is not a purebred and I am afraid he will end up as meat. I can't keep him in my herd because he is related to 3 out of my 6 girls and I have no room for a wether.
