WWGA executive director shares excitement for the Wyoming State Ram Sale
Welcome to the 95th Annual Wyoming State Ram Sale, the premier range ram sale in the West!
The Wyoming Wool Growers Association (WWGA) and I invite everyone to join us in Douglas this September to assess these excellent rams from across the West and purchase your next stud ram, terminal or commercial sires.
The Wyoming State Ram Sale offers some of the most highly desired genetics in the country, truly offering the “Best in the West!”
The WWGA and our consignors are proud to offer this high-quality consignment across multiple breeds. These rams truly represent the legacy of, not only this sale, but the great state of Wyoming. The WWGA is also excited to have new consignors this year, offering new breed options.
Come to Douglas to check them out and view them ahead of time online through the WWGA website or our social media pages!
The Wyoming Ram Sale is a time for consignors, buyers and supporting businesses to visit with old and new acquaintances. It is also a time for embracing new information, and the WWGA is excited to host educational seminars on Monday afternoon, Sept. 11, at the Ruthe James Williams Center at the Wyoming State Fairgrounds.
The Sheep Production Workshop will be presented by Dr. Whit Stewart, University of Wyoming Sheep Extension Specialist. Topics include “Knowing the Numbers: Simple Tools that Affect the Bottom Line” and a “Sheep and Wool Market Update and Panel.”
I also want to take a moment to thank you all for this first year as your executive director and tell you what a wonderful experience it has been. I have learned so much from each of you. I appreciate how understanding you all have been as I learn the ropes of this position and how to better serve you in this role. It’s been a joy to work with you all thus far, and I’m excited for the road ahead!
Lastly, we are very excited to announce Hageman Sisters Rambouillets has graciously offered a beautiful ewe this year to kick off the ram sale.
Proceeds from this generous donation are used for promoting the WWGA and our membership, through the ram sale, ewe sale, the Wyoming Sheep and Wool Festival and other events the WWGA hosts or facilitates.
Thank you to all our consignors and sponsors for the 95th Wyoming State Ram Sale. This sale is not possible without each of your contributions. I look forward to viewing the “Best in the West!” with all of you!
