Goats ... Boy my Buck is Stinky !!

If you are considering purchasing some goats for either your families dairy or meat needs, keep in mind that intact male bucks - STINK ... They pee on themselves - so yes they really stink !!  So when you are building their pen, I say 'their' because he will need a companion, put them down wind and fairly far away from your house. Not so far that it is a huge inconvenience, but far enough so on these beautiful windy days you are still able to sit out on your porch.

Disbud your goats, neuter your inferior boys, and take really good care of your girls, and they will reward you with more than you can dream of.
