Sheep in lineThe 2015-2016 Ram Testing Consignment was conducted at the Fort Ellis Research Farm. We had 74 ram on test that were evaluated on growth performance. In an effort to add valued information, we provided additional wool analysis to characterize variability from side to britch and collected multiple carcass ultrasound scans. Also, we tailored the ration to better maximize growth and reproductive development while maintaining characteristics to ensure ram longevity.
