"All-American, From Coast to Coast" describes the Columbia breed of sheep and the importance it plays in the U.S. sheep industry. The Columbia Sheep Breeders Association of America announced their 2009 Columbia National Show and Sale will be held June 10 to 13 at the Deseret Peak Complex in Tooele, Utah.
One of the many highlights of the event is the addition of broadcasting the auction online, allowing those individuals who cannot attend the opportunity to bid and purchase sheep. You will also be able to watch the National Show as it happens. DVAuction, Inc., will handle the online auction, please visit their website at dvauction.com to see how the process works. There you will find an informative tutorial about the entire process. Transportation can also be arranged to most regions of the country for a minimal fee.
Prior to selling some of the highest quality sheep in America, the week of events include a junior show, a futurity show, fleece show, membership meeting, barbecue, banquet and promotional auction.
The Columbia breed is truly an "All-American Breed" being developed in the U.S. in 1912. The breed has proven its value and versatility with impacts in range flocks, range ram producers, commercial operations, family farm flocks, purebred operations and show flocks across the nation. Please plan to attend the event and visit with sheep producers from all over the United States.
