WVU Texel Project

West Virginia University (WVU) has established a Texel flock for research purposes. Preliminary research conducted at WVU showed that Texels have some level of resistance to internal parasites. Enhanced resistance to internal parasites would make Texel rams the ideal choice to sire grass-fed market lambs.

The Texel breed originated in the Netherlands and is known for its high degree of muscling. It is one of the most popular terminal sire breeds in the world. US producers are increasingly using Texels to sire crossbred market lambs with more muscling.
