It's Ram MOT Time - The 5 T's for Tups

Updated: Aug 19, 2020

Now is the time to carry out the Ram MOT, at least 10 weeks pre tupping:

  • Toes - check locomotion, legs and feet

  • Teeth - check for under and overshot jaws, gaps and molar abscesses

  • Testicles - Measure and check firmness (like a flexed biceps) with no lumps or bumps

  • Tone - check for body condition score between 3.5-4.0 (spine well covered)

  • Treat - check vaccinations are up-to-date (clostridia, Pasteurella), parasites, lameness, shearing?

Consult your vet for a thorough examination.
