Two more basic questions for you all. Would goats chew pressure treated posts (fence and shelter)? I can't think of any realistic alternative when sinking them into the ground. Do bucks stink ALL year long or is this just during the breeding season? The Storey dairy goat guide suggests keeping him fenced in an area the keeper doesn't actually need to go into to feed/water. Why? Shouldn't you develop some sort of relationship with a 200lb beast that you'll be keeping around long term? A neighbor with goats leaves his buck in year round. It is a tiny buck with full size lamanchas, but the buck doesn't seem to be a problem aside from threatening to ram all the time- and I assume this could be trained out of them? Would a buck effectively be kept separate from the does by electric mesh fencing? Thanks!
