A special day

for the Texel Sheep

Day of the Sheep

On the land near the Hoornder church the Day of the Sheep will take place again. With this day the organization wants to contribute to the importance of sheep farming on Texel. Various sheep breeds can be seen, competitions are held and demonstrations given. Sheep will be shorn, milked and trimmed.

Sheep Shearing

Shearing promises to be an exciting competition. This year there are two Dutch champions 2022 participating: Dennis Kuiper from den Burg and Johannes Kloosterman.


Besides the market stalls filled by wool entrepreneurs and wool hobbyists, there are demonstrations and explanations about the sheep, the sheepskin, the boning of a lamb (in the butcher shop of Den Hoorn) and the landscape formed by sheep farming. There is also sheep milk ice cream.
