Cold Stream the Texel Specialists


The Dutch T E X E L Sheep
Texel sheep originate from the Friesian Islands off the northern tip of Holland. Over the centuries the local farmers developed the breed for meat, milk and wool production. More recently the supply of cheap wool from Australia has concentrated improvements on meat quality. This has been so successful that:
THE TEXELS ARE LEADERS IN THE SUPPLY OF SUCCELENT LAMB THAT IS IN INCREASING DEMAND.
European sheep producers have taken to the breed with enthusiasm and that enthusiasm is now spreading in North America.
