I'm no way near as experienced as some other breeders in this forum.
But in my experience the bucks will breed to a certain point. If they have fathered a lot of litters, they can become lazy, and just don't want to "do it" anymore :lol:

Some bucks over a certain age have a decrease in reproductive behaviour and fertility, I find in some bucks it can start to go down hill as early as 6 months others keep working for several months more.
