Top tips for buying and looking after your rams

Past Event

27 August 2019

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join AHDB’s Signet Breeding Specialist, Emma Steele and Fiona Lovatt from Flock Health Ltd, for a webinar  giving you top tips for buying and looking after your rams, along with how to give them a ram MOT and understanding the estimated breeding values (EBV’s)

Using rams with superior breeding can increase flock profitability  up to £3 per lamb. However, it is important to take all factors into account when buying a ram – not just its figures or its looks. If he is unable to work efficiently, those genetics and your investment will be wasted. 

There are some essential checks you can do annually to make sure your rams are fit for purpose.  

The webinar will cover:

  • how to choose a ram to suit your system
  • essential checks at sale
  • doing a ram MOT
  • vaccinations

The webinar will last approximately 35 minutes, with time for questions at the end.
