The Benefits of joining
As a member of the Texel Sheep Society you’re part of a family of more than 2000 like-minded breeders across Great Britain.
Members of the Society support a wide range of work undertaken by the Society, including promoting the breed both at home and overseas and research and development in to the Texel breed helping maintain the breed’s position as the most popular pedigree sire in Europe.
Alongside these activities the Society also maintains the pedigree database of the breed, helping give buyers confidence in the quality of the stock they are buying and aiding genetic improvement through performance recording.
Members can access a range of online services through the Society website, including the Basco database to record birth, deaths and sales as well as performance data. In addition to this members can use the BASCO In-Breeding tool to select your next purchases and/or mating decisions.
Society members can also enter stock for sale at a wide range of Society and regional club sales across Great Britain and enter Texel breed classes at agricultural shows the length and breadth of the country.
The Society also produces a range of publications each year many of which are exclusive to members of the Society and which offer unique advertising opportunities enabling members to promote their flocks to fellow members and the wider industry.
Importantly, Society members form the largest collective sheep breeding group in Europe, helping speed up the rate of genetic gain in the sheep industry and delivering benefits to the wider agricultural and food industry.
Regional clubs across Great Britain also form a business and social hub for Texel breeders, giving members the opportunity to mix and socialise with fellow breeders and others with an interest in the breed.
