A consignment of 103 Texels, sourced from seven Scottish flocks has been exported from the UK to Switzerland.
A selection of rams and ewes made the journey, with ram lambs and shearling rams among the choice stock. Gimmers made up the bulk of the females sent, alongside several ewe lambs.
The export coordinator Robert Laird said that the Swedish buyers were looking for good, functional, commercial sheep with growth and carcass.
Swiss importer and breeder Heinz Pluss said the Texels had been sourced to meet growing demand and interest in the breed.
Texel Sheep Society chief executive John Yates said the export displayed the growing appetite for British Texels in Europe.
He said: “Performance recording adds a layer of detail and information which helps the buyers with their decision making process and gives reassurance about the genetic potential of the stock they are buying.”
