Title: teaser ram Q's
Post by: Hillview Farm on May 07, 2015, 10:06:52 am
What age can I get a ram lamb vasectomised (sorry if I've spelt it wrong)

How long after the op do they need to be kept away from the ladies?

It depends how good your vets eyesight and patience is for how old, I do mine as ram lambs as its easier for me. We tell people not to use them for six weeks... but tbh they are probably near infertile with near immediate effect

Why not buy one of mine? Non-mv ram lamb (not used/tested) 120 non-mv ram used/proven (no early pregnancies) 150 or mv acc. proven ram 200

I am doing last years ram lambs now---then give them a month to recover before putting them with the cull ewes (they can fire any live ammo safely)

I am doing a few extra---wool shedders so easy to look after ---could save one for you if you wanted?
