Have had several calls regarding the dumb asses section a couple of weeks ago. There are a lot of people, very experienced showmen, having problems with their goats being retarded as well. The only common connection, is that they all have a lot of 900 genetics, the goats, not the people. It seems as there is now more 900 influenced goats out there, and more retarded goats. Mikey and I have dealt with this for several years, as he and I have fed several wethers bred this way. But as they are more inbred and more of them out there, the more mental midgets we have to deal with. Of course, they are real good goats or we wouldn’t be messing with them. That is they trade off–big tops, butts and bone sometimes equals little brain cavity. Its just going to take time and patience.
