How much force can a wild ram create when he buts heads with other rams?

    A Mountain Bighorn Sheep (ram) can run up to 20 miles per hour and can weight up to 280 pounds. If you use the basic equation for force (force = mass x acceleration) and take an average weight (220 lbs) times 29.3 feet per second (20 mph) you end up with 891 Newtons of force or about 200 pounds. I know I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end of that ram.
