Ram, a male counterpart of sheep. Horned, robust animal. Larger and meaner of the duo. Still, without it, there is no sheep breeding, and thus no sheep farming as well. Rams are an essential part of the sheep flock, but they come with quite an additional challenge for the farmers. Rams can be stubborn and aggressive and in that way could pose a danger for other animals in the flock, but to the farmer as well. Let’s tackle everything about ram’s behavior, aggression, and how to tackle their aggression, safely. So, are rams dangerous?
Rams can be dangerous. Rams might show their most aggressive behavior during a breeding season. They can be aggressive for territory or they might just react to fear or stress. Their charges and head-butts can actually cause harm to humans and animals as well. A way to reduce potential harm is to properly manage and train a ram. Sometimes, even a more permanent solution might be needed.
