Pedigree Texel Sheep

Flock History

We have been breeding Texels for 18 years at Logie Durno. The flock was founded on females purchased from a number of leading flocks, and has been built by buying the top commercial rams in the UK.

Our main breeding goal for the Texel flock is to produce top quality shearling rams with the commercial farmer in mind. Therefore we select on size, length, carcass, tight skins and correctness. We strive to purchase the best stock rams possible to compliment the flock, a number of the most influential sires can be viewed on the Stock rams page. The average peformance index of our 2017  Texel shearling rams is 367 which puts the whole crop in the top 5% of UK Texels. Our top index shearlings are over 500 with the UK top 1% being 395.

Future breed plans are to carry on breeding towards a long clean Texel which breeds E grade lambs, mating a lot of ewes and having high performance figures which guarantee lambs will be more profitable for commercial farmers in the future.

I run 800 Suffolk x Mule ewes and last year put them to Texel tups from Logie Durno Sheep.  The lambs were born end of February onwards. They had a great start but hit dry weather so used creep to keep them moving.

The lambs look tremendous and over 2 weeks we put away 400+ lambs to Ashford, where they topped the market for price per kg!

The lambs have definitely been finished more quickly per head.


There is a Huge Selection of Texel rams available in 2021 which can be ordered today and delivered anywhere in the UK.
