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.
