Young ram service age??

dot me not

Recommended Posts

Age of fertility varies greatly by breed. Suffolks and Hampshires would be later than Finnsheep or even Dorsets.


I have used a Finnsheep ram lamb that was four months old 25 ewes with okay results -- it took him about four weeks to cover all the ewes. Compare this with my mature North Country Cheviot ram who covered 25 ewes in six days, or an old Tunis ram that I had that covered 65 ewes in 18 days.
