Routine Operation For Goats.

Handling of Goats

Goats are seldom difficult to handle and frequently learn to come for food and milking when called. They dislike being held by horns and ears, and care should be taken not to disturb the nostrils. For an ideal handling, it is preferable to hold them with neck or head collars.

Castration The Bucks

It is done at the age of 2 to 4 weeks, although castration at a later stage is successful. For this method, the Burdizzo’s castrator is used. Care should be taken to pass the spermatic chord of each testis in two places, half apart. At that time, testis should be held by hand in such a way that it never reaches near the hinge of the castrator. After castration there may be swelling of the testis which soon becomes normal within 2 or 3 days.
