Wyoming Select Bred Ewe Sale
Another Chance at The BEST in the WEST
The Wyoming Wool Growers has historically conducted one of the premier Ram Sales in the region. We are pleased to announce our 1st Annual WY Select Bred Ewe Sale, held on February 28, 2023, was a success. The 2nd Annual Bred Ewe Sale will be held on February 24, 2024 in Barn 3 at the Cam-Plex in Gillette, WY. The sale will be broadcast live online. Please register at least 24 hours before the sale. The link will be made available soon.
The Wyoming Select Bred Ewe sale offers the highest quality range ewes meeting some of the most rigorous standards of any sale in the country. The WWGAs Wyoming Select Bred Ewe Sale, offers open ewe lambs and yearlings, bred two year olds, running age, and broken-mouthed ewes. Purebred ewes might be available, but all papers exchange outside the sale.
All ewes will be confirmed pregnant the day prior to the sale with the exception of open ewe lambs and yearling ewes. Ewes will be strictly sifted based on eyes, mouths, teeth (where age appropriate), udders, teats, body, legs, etc. Sifting is conducted by a panel of notable western sheep producers and knowledgeable veterinarians. It is our intention that all ewes meet the highest quality standards for which the Wyoming Select Bred Ewe Sale will be noted.
While the Select Bred Ewe Sale is about the business of transferring genetics
within the sheep industry, it is also a time when sheep producers get
together to visit, discuss the industry, and renew old, and make new,
acquaintances. We want to encourage everyone to attend the lamb lunch at 11:30 am on the day of the sale and talk to the WWGA representatives about becoming a member, especially if you are a new producer purchasing ewes. We have a membership that affords you the opportunity at mentorship with your peers and experience sheep producers.
The two days spent in Gillette are intended to be fulfilling,
informative and fun, and we hope to meet those goals each year!
Only the healthiest, highest quality ewes from some of the nation’s premier
breeders will be accepted for the sale, assuring buyers that our ewes are
