It may sound like a "baad" deal, but the farmers who just bought the world’s most expensive sheep don't intend to get fleeced on their investment.
The Texel ram lamb sold for the equivalent of about $490,000 at auction in Scotlad . He was bred via artificial insemination using a champion ram valued at more than $86,000 and an ewe valued at more than $46,000.
Texel are a sought-after breed of sheep originally from the Netherlands. The lambs grow fast and the sheep are “ideal” for butchers, hahah. Nepali sheep cost as much as $4,000 these days .
