This is the most complete study I've seen to date on castration age and its effects on urethral development:

It seems that three months is the magic age when those organs stop growing in diameter (or at least no longer grow significantly enough to make a difference). Interestingly, two and possibly three bucks that I used as breeders and castrated at 6 or more months developed UC later in life. None were related to each other. In the two "for sure" cases it was most likely due to excess calcium in the diet and possibly also obesity, which I believe is a significant risk factor that is perhaps not discussed enough. Castration age is only one piece of the UC puzzle and I think you can wether your buck without any risk of incomplete development.
