Vasectomising tups to produce teasers can be a very useful management tool, helping to ensure a compact lambing period. We can carry out tup vasectomies at the surgery. This helps to minimise the risk of infection. If you would like to book a tup(s) in for vasectomy, please contact the surgery.
Points to note:
- Vasectomies should be carried out at least 2 months before teasers are needed
- Ensure that ewes are out of sight and smell of any rams or wethers for at least one month before the teasers will join the ewes
- Introduce the teaser to the flock for a period of 12 days
- Remove the teaser and introduce the breeding ram
