Texel Sheep

Texel Sheep

 

The Texel is a meat sheep that produces a lean, well muscled and high yielding carcass. Developed on the island of Texel off the coast of Holland in the early 1800's, the breed was imported in to Canada in the 1980's. Since that time, the breed has grown to make a significant contribution to the country's prime lamb trade. This has mainly been done through the use of Texel rams as terminal sires in commercial crossbreeding programs.

Although the ewes have only average prolificacy, they are very docile and easily managed. They adapt well to either pasture based or feedlot style management and show excellent feed conversion in all systems.

 

Le Texel est un mouton à viande qui produit une carcasse maigre, bien musclée et à haut rendement. Développée dans l'île de Texel au large de la côte de la Hollande au début des années 1800, la race a été importée au Canada au cours des années 1980. Depuis ce temps, la race a évoluée pour apporter une contribution significative au commerce d'agneau du pays. Cela a principalement été réalisé grâce à l'utilisation de béliers Texel en terminal dans des programmes de croisement commerciaux. Bien que les brebis aient seulement une prolificité moyenne, elles sont très dociles et facilement gérées. Ces moutons s'adaptent bien à la gestion sur pâturage ou à l'engraissement en parc et démontrent une excellente conversion alimentaire dans tous les systèmes.
