There can be a lot gained from buying the right ram for your system and in this webinar Ed Brant from Signet Breeding Services will explain how you can select rams to improve your flock’s performance, especially if you are keeping your own female replacements. He will look at what makes efficient ewes and how you can select the rams that will sire them, and the traits that are available to help you select rams.

The webinar will cover:

  • Choosing a ram to meet the needs of your system
  • Why not to base your purchase on looks alone
  • Breeding traits to look at
  • Using data to inform your decision
  • Where to find EBV information

 

If you can’t make the webinar, please still register, as it will be recorded and sent to you afterwards to watch in your own time.
