The Southeast Colorado Wool Growers Association will have its annual wool pool to assist regional sheep growers with the marketing of their yearly wool clip, according to Cynthia Zwick, wool pool coordinator.
The wool pool collection will be from 9 a.m. to noon, May 18, at Cynthia Zwick’s place, 34450 Highway 167, Fowler, Colo. The contact person is Zwick at 719-263-4325. Wool will be received sooner than May 18 but only if wool is properly packed and prior arrangements are made with Zwick.
All wool must be bagged in approved sacks or bales and separated into black face wool, white face wool, tags/bellies, and black wool. The SECWGA will again collect the payment for the wool from the wool buyer and make all payments to each participating producer. Marketing charges are 15 cents per pound for non-SECWGA members. Members will not have the marketing charge. Membership dues are $25 per year, to be paid on or before the wool pool collection date.
The SEWGA has a square bale hydraulic packer available to assist producers.
Questions can be referred to Zwick or Janet Golden at the Otero County Extension Office at 719-254-7608.
