TPH - Episode 121

18Oct

Have you ever wondered why you see some goats with horns and others without? Today we are going to examine the topic of weather or not to disbud your goats. This is one of those topics that most people feel very strongly about one way or the other. Here in the U.S. most goat owners are in favor of disbudding. However, in Europe many livestock owners are encouraged to keep their goats horns. I have included links to a couple of sites that I referenced in the show so that you can check them out for yourselves. Oh! And I mentioned a video that I had put on You Tube but it's actually on Instagram. Sorry for the mix up!
