About Columbia SheepAbout Columbia Sheep



Columbia sheep were one of the first sheep to originate inrnthe United States. They are the resultrnUSDA and university research. Development began in 1912 in Laramie, Wyoming. Lincolnrnrams were crossed with Rambouillet ewes. In 1918, the foundation flock wasrnmoved to the U.S. Sheep Experiment Station near Dubois, Idaho, for furtherrnrefinement. rnrn 

rnrnThough originally bred for range conditions, the Columbiasrnhave found widespread acceptance throughout the United States and are usedrnincreasingly to sire crossbred market lambs. Columbias are one of thernlarger-sized breeds. Rams weigh between 225 and 300 lbs (100-135 kg) andrnfemales weigh between 150 and 225 lbs. (68-102 kg).rnrn
