History of the Blue Texel Sheep.
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

nearly 5 month.

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
