Logic Problems: Resolve Suresh & Ramesh Argument

Ramesh and Suresh are having an argument. Ramesh says it is more correct to say, “the herd of sheep is eating hay in the field” whereas Suresh says it is more correct to say, “the herd of sheep are eating hay in the field”.

The question is: Who is Right?
