    2. Rams Monitor scrotal circumference Mature rams >14 inches or 36 cm Ram lambs >12.5 inches or 32 cm Use at night Hand mate to stretch superior genetics? Safety Human Ram

    3. Selecting Rams Scrotal Circumference Bigger Better + Correlation Circumference Changes with Season Size/weight Age Relationship to Puberty

    4. Teaser rams Highly motivated Non-seasonal genetics Use with stud ram precautions Timely re-plumbing Stimulate estrous activity Increase # born Concentrates lambing Increase conception Accelerates puberty Ram effect
