We have a herd off about 30 Scrapie and Maedi-Visna free Blue Texel Sheep.

My parents have around 15 ewe's and we have around 15 ewe's. Our ewe are producing around 2 lambs a year. Most off our ewe's are having 85 - 86 points for Overall Conformation.
The Blue Texel Sheep are well known because of their perfect meatness, like the white Texel sheep, but they are larger, and producing easier 2 lamb's a year with a lot less lamming problems.

All are sheep are ARR/ARR for already 4 years, and we are also Maedi-Visna free.

We are using in 2008 the  2 Ram's 08368-00678 & 26134-01250.

istory of the Blue Texel Sheep.
The name says all: we are talking about a Texel sheep with a blue fleece. Although probably there have been always spontanious colourvariants arised out of Texel sheep, it was not until 1977 before some people put attention to it. Since the late 70-ties some breeders have bred the blue colourvariant of the Texel pure. To meet to the wish to register the Blue Texel sheep in a proper way, the flockbook 'Blauwe Texelaars' had been raised in 1983. The use of the term 'blue' (in Dutch: 'blauw') originates from the fact that although the fleece looks white/gray or brown the colour inside the fleece is steel blue.

Characteristics of the breed
Blue Texel sheep are early maturing. The ewe lambs come already in heat at an age of about 7 month. The breeding season of the mature Blue Texel is nearly 5 month.
Not only the white Texel breed is known for its excellent carcass composition, so is the Blue Texel. The carcasses on average consist of 60 percent lean meat. Due to their extremely low fat covering, lambs of the Texel breed can be sold over a long period of time with different end-weights, without any loss of carcass quality. Because of the breed’s extremely high degree of meatiness, the carcass has a killing-out percentage of 55 - 60%.
The Blue Texel ewe is a good mother. The milk yield of a Blue Texel ewe is large enough for raising 2 lambs. Blue Texel sheep are excellent graziers and therefore easy to manage. This is also due to the good resistance to internal parasites.

The features of the Blue Texels are:
