We Are Better Together!
The Kentucky Sheep and Wool Producers and
the Kentucky Goat Producers are looking for dedicated producers who are interested in making our
state's sheep and goat industries better.
Consider becoming part our team, where your great ideas can help us continue to move the industry forward!
Sheep production in KY is growing, both in number of shepherds and head of sheep. More and more people are realizing the potential sheep can bring to their farm, be it a small hobby farm or a large cattle operation. I’ve even spoken to some who have sold their cattle and are moving to sheep.
Being on the Board of Directors for KSWPA has allowed me to speak with many of these shepherds, both old hands and beginners. One thing I have learned through these conversations is that Ky has a great opportunity to become an important part of the American sheep industry.

Each Association has board meetings throughout the year by phone and in person. The meetings are generally 1 hour.
Board members also participate in association events/activities throughout the year. This requires approximately 10 hours during the year.
All board members attend the annual membership meeting during the KY Annual Producer Conference in October.
