Blue Texel society
up and running

The recently launched Irish Blue Texel Society has confirmed a date of Friday 9 August for its first show and sale. The show takes place at 4pm with the sale commencing at 7pm including an entry of 50 hogget ewes/rams and ewe lambs/ram lambs. The breed is relatively new to the Irish sheep sector but secretary Philip Crowe is heartened by the numbers which have appeared since work began on establishing the society in 2018. He says there are 30 members signed up and interest is growing.
