Wyoming Collegiate Wool Growers

The Collegiate Wool Growers (CWG) is a recognized student organization open to all students interested in the sheep industry. Our main goal is to promote networking between college students and established sheep operations. CWG aims to educate club members about the sheep industry and to produce future leaders within the field.



Meetings are held every other Tuesday in the LREC Main Office at 5:15pm.
