Last Friday I attended the Millside Blue Texel Production Sale in Carlisle. 60 head of Blue Texel male and females from the flock of David Alexander were sold. I purchased 1 three year old, 1 two year old and 6 yearling females and with the purchase of 2 yearlings from Dan Jones of Jonsland Blue Texels, I now have my foundation flock of 10 females. There was alot of interest in the Breed at Carlisle with breeders from the Lleyn, Beltex and Charollais world looking to purchase breeding animals.
I am interested in using a Blue Texel tup on some of my Lleyns and David Alexander had some gimmers of this cross for sale at Carlisle; very impressive sheep that I believe would be of great interest to the commercial farmer.
