100th Annual Idaho Ram Sale
For the last 100– years, the Idaho Wool Growers Association has hosted a premier ram sale, providing quality animals for flocks across the western states. This year’s sale will be July 9-10 at the Gooding County Fairgrounds in Gooding, Idaho. The sale not only commemorates a century of sheep production in Idaho but also honors the legacy and lasting impact sheep have had on the state.
What used to be known as the “Suffolk Sale of the West”, has adapted and grown to reflect the needs of sheep producers in Idaho and across the west. This year’s sale lineup includes Suffolks, Hampshires, Rambouillets, Columbias, Targhees, and crossbreds from four different states.
The sale auction begins at 10:30 a.m. on July 10. Ram viewing and the Lamb BBQ Dinner sponsored by Columbia Bank starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, July 9. The Ram Sale and BBQ are both free to attend and open to the public, regardless if you are buying or selling rams. This year’s promo ewe is donated by the University of Idaho, the dollars raised from this ewe will go towards funding a scholarship to a student interested in sheep production and sciences.
The Idaho Ram Sale is dedicated to providing buyers with high quality rams in an effort to improve lamb quality production in Idaho and the western states. The proceeds from the Idaho Ram Sale support the Idaho Wool Growers Association in its efforts to provide a lasting value and represent the interests to sheep producers of all flock sizes across the state and work towards the advancement and prosperity of the Idaho sheep industry.
