How do you all deal with an aggressive ram? I understand that rams tend to get more aggressive during the rutting period just before or just as the ewes are cycling. We have a new (luckily polled) dorset/Hampshire cross ram who chases us and butts us. (We don't run from him, but he wants us to. He does butt HARD though). Will this behavior calm down after the rutting season is over with? We don't touch his head as we don't want to encourage the behavior. But we don't know how aggressive we should be with him in our effort to discourage it. We keep the kids all out of the pasture because he is downright dangerous right now. I'd love to know how you guys deal with this behavior?
