Texel sheep, also known as Blue Texel, have become increasingly popular among commercial sheep farmers, particularly as terminal sires for prime lamb production.
This breed encompasses various types, including Dutch, English, and French Texel sheep. English Texels are typically taller animals, while Dutch Texels are characterized by their short legs and robust muscling. Despite these variations, all Texel sheep share remarkable muscle development and leanness, making them highly desirable for meat production.
With their muscular build and efficient meat production qualities, Texel sheep have gained recognition and favor among sheep farmers seeking to improve the quality and yield of their lamb production operations.
