Post by Shepherd » Mon Jan 01, 2018 10:22 pm

The Blue Texel, a variant of white Texel sheep, evolved from crossbreeding of Dutch polder sheep with English breeds, such as Leicester, Wensleydale and Lincoln.

The Texel breed has developed into a meat sheep providing great lean meat quality, and has become popular worldwide as a sire of slaughter lambs.

Distribution is in the Netherlands and Europe.
