UW Ag College Dean Receives Wyoming Wool Growers Amigo Award


January 7, 2013 — The Wyoming Wool Growers Association (WWGA) presented its Amigo Award to Frank Galey, the dean of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Wyoming.

Galey was cited for supporting sheep research and outreach programs for producers.

The WWGA announced the award during its recent joint meeting with Idaho and Utah woolgrowers. The WWGA’s executive board decides recipients, says Bryce Reece, WWGA executive vice president.

UW conducts an annual ram test, and installed a sheep GrowSafe feeding system that allows data collection on an individual animal while in a feedlot with other livestock. The college also entered into an agreement with the WWGA in late 2011 to house the Von Krosigk Targhee flock at the Laramie Research and Extension Center (LREC) near Laramie.

"Frank has fought pretty hard for us,” Reece says. “The discussion around the table was that few universities are even interested in doing sheep anything any more. Frank has not only maintained sheep activities, but it’s still a strong program.”
