ewe runs from ram
« on: October 24, 2020, 04:44:16 pm »

struggling to get one of my ewes into lamb; the proven ram covers all the rest of the flock but with this particular ewe although he will show interest (guess this following her season) when it comes to him becoming a little more friendly with her, she just runs off; the ram has displayed all the correct signs to suggest she is in season; the ewe has received sponging/CIDR OVIS & PMSG injections but to no real effect; I don't believe she is barren, otherwise why the ram show the interest; had read that the ewe could possibly be shy, really!....don't want to really give up yet, any thoughts how I might assist their relationship....thanks stuart

Pen them or put in a shed every night so she can only go a limited distance or if he follows her closely suggesting she is in heat then pen the 2 of them tightly for a day
