Columbia was the first breed developed in the U.S. beginning in 1912 from
Lincoln x Rambouillet crosses. Columbias are a hardy and gregarious breed and
make good mothers. They are one of the larger-sized breeds in the U.S., have
white faces with wool extending down the legs and are increasingly used as
terminal sires to produce fast growing lean market lambs. They yield heavy,
medium-wool fleeces with good staple length.
