Blue Texel - "Using a BLUE will make more MONEY for you."



Billed as the ultimate harvest festival on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September, at the Three Counties Showground Malvern, the Autumn Show was the place to go.

The high spot for me was the livestock on display.

The Blue Texel is an easy lambing carcase sheep of an attractive colour. 

Rams are popular because their progeny is easily lambed, something that the narrow head and light bone of the Blue Texel are promoted for.

They are a hardy breed, originating on the very exposed Texel Island and Holland, therefore the hair, found from birth, on the heads and legs of all of these animals is also an important characteristic.

All sheep must be correct in teeth, teats, testicles and legs.
