California Wool Growers Association: Unifying the Voice of the Sheep Industry Since 1860
On September 24, 1860, a group of forward thinking people came together to sell their wool. Access to the Boston wool market was the most pressing issue facing producers at that time. To solve this problem, these producers procured a ship and took their wool “around the horn” to the wool markets in Boston. While they were on the east coast they witnessed the beginning of the Civil war.
Today’s members include a wide range of ranchers, farm flock producers, feeders, 4-H and FFA students, supportive businesses and other interested individuals. As the CWGA continues to address producers’ most pressing concerns, you too can share this rich heritage and learn valuable skills to improve your operation
The California Wool Growers Association will deliver lasting value to support and grow all segments of the California sheep industry.
