That one who crows at 2am is high on the list.
We processed a 3 year old Dorper ram. There was no taint or any off taste at all. took him right out of the pasture with the ewes and to slaughter he went, no special feed or anything.I wouldn't process an intact ram at 6 months-- he should be capable of breeding 40 ewes at that age--- I know my Nubian bucks could! and IMO if he 'can' cover that many-- he prolly has 'taint' of one sort or another.
A Nubian wether at that age-- you can cook it like any beef with a few spices and herbs I've had folks not be able to tell it wasn't beef.
