About the course

The reproductive ability of rams is crucial to the overall flock performance.  Assuming, rather than assessing, the ability of the ram is a common and costly mistake.

The general and detailed clinical examination of rams pre-tupping, at times integrated by semen collection and evaluation, is a cost effective service which sheep farmers are inclined to endorse as ad hoc intervention or as part of regular flock consultancy.

Course Content:

  • Best use of rams to improve flock performance
  • Elements of reproductive anatomy and physiology
  • The ram general and detailed clinical examination (with elements of ultrasonography)
  • Semen collection and evaluation

Key Outcomes:

  • Advise farmers on the best use of rams to boost flock profitability
  • Carry out a general and detailed clinical examination of rams
  • Collect semen
  • Examine semen motility and morphology
