In Reply to: i have an issue about dehorning posted by lisa on August 09, 2001 at 18:36:51:
We do not dehorn our herd. I think all the risks the others have stated can be very real. We raise meat goats, not dairy. It is our experience that these animals are easier to deal with horned than dehorned. Virtually every meat goat rancher in the area does the same(truthfully I can't think of one who doesn't). I have never been injured nor have any of our goats. We use electric fencing so they don't get stuck, although when we used wire fencing they did. That was a real pain. We raise boers and KIKO with some spanish in for good measure. A mature KIKO buck has such majestic horns I couldn't think of them without them.
