"The emasculatome, Burdizzo, method involves a clamp-like tool which crushes the spermatic cord and blood vessels leading to the testicles."
Holding the billy in his lap, our kids almost nuzzle my husband as I feel for the cord. They are concerned as this is not a usual position of goat and human. Goats like to have all four on the floor.
I position the tool and squeeze for a slow count of 1-2-3-4-5...6-7.
Release. Baby goat screams reach deep. They stand around stunned for a minute, then find mom for a drink.
Now the boys can grow and thrive without the enhancement of testosterone.
The barnyard rests. The baby goats grow.
