Boars can technically be neutered at any age, provided that they are healthy and an experienced vet is willing. Older boars are less likely to make as quick and easy a recovery when they are younger, but I know of at least one four year old boar that was successfully neutered. However, it is usually only younger boys that get the snip.

How old is the boar you are thinking about?
