Membership

Our members are the foundation of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association. Membership in the WWGA gives strength to the
Association and to Wyoming’s sheep industry.

Anyone who is engaged in the production of sheep, goats or livestock, either directly or indirectly, is eligible for membership in the Association upon payment of the prescribed dues. Membership is also available to any person or entity committed to supporting the purposes and objectives of the Association. Our priority is good communication and interaction with our members. Members receive timely updates containing news of the Association, industry activities and state and federal issues of importance to sheep producers. We also offer WY Sheep, a quarterly publication dedicated to sharing the latest research related to the production of sheep. Our website (www.wyowool.com), Facebook page (Wyoming Wool Growers) and Twitter (@wyowool) are updated regularly and are great ways to keep up with what we are doing. Additionally, members may participate in WWGA activities (see reverse side) and consign rams in the Wyoming State Ram Sale. We estimate that a portion of members’ dues are used for lobbying purposes and may not be tax deductible. For details, please contact the WWGA office.
