Welcome to NCWGA

If you are interested in naturally-colored sheep and their wool, the Natural Colored Wool Growers Association invites you to become a member of our ever-growing community of colored sheep breeders and supporters.

The NCWGA

Since 1977 the purpose of NCWGA has been to assist members in the development and promotion of naturally-colored sheep and their wool. NCWGA can accomplish this by offering a number of services to members. These services include programs to support breeders of colored sheep, to support sheep shows which allow colored sheep, and to support the judges of those shows.

We also maintain a membership directory, to help bring breeders and buyers together. This is a reliable resource to help shepherds search out colored sheep in a wide variety of breeds, and allows consumers, like hand spinners and crafters, find local sources for wool.

Finally, our professional sheep registration service is reliable, accurate, and safe.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We will be happy to provide any assistance we can.

Subject: Support Dawn Recovery




Dear Member,

One of our members is in dire need of the entire Natural Colored Wool Growers Association help and it will be really appreciated if we all can support her. A fundraising campaign has been created and we are counting on everyone's support. Below is the fundraising campaign, thank you for your time and support.







Susan would like you to support
Support Dawn Recovery
by making a donation and helping
spread the word.





Dawn is a 3 year old boy who has been diagnosed with Fanconi anemia; a very rare and dangerous type of anemia. This causes him to have physical abnormalities, shortness of breath and nose bleeding.

Dawn has to be transferred to the OHSU Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Oregon. It's going to be a long, painful and expensive process. He will need to undergo a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible and if he doesn't get the procedure done, we will lose him. The entire process will cost $85,000 and we have been able to raise $39,400.

We are asking for your financial support as both me and my husband are self-employed, leaving us with poor insurance coverage. We are knocking on your generous heart to support us financially in this journey and any amount given will truly make a huge impact. Most importantly, we also hope you can whisper a prayer for our little boy.

I wouldn’t send funds anyway because the name of a NCWGA was not listed and most of us have the names of members.

They are at it again, if you receive this email it is a scam!!!

Pretty sure I’d laugh if I got a message like this.

I have had calls from lots of people but we don’t answer the phone if we don’t recognize the are code or phone #. Thanks for the heads up.

2020 Midwest Stud Ram Sale Canceled Due to COVID-19 Concerns

Given the current circumstances and social gathering restrictions related to COVID-19, it is with a heavy heart that Heartland Livestock Services, along with the Midwest Stud Ram Sale Executive Committee, have concluded that the 2020 Midwest Stud Ram Sale will be canceled. This decision was not made lightly, and we believe it is in the best interest of the health and safety of consignors, buyers, our staff, fairgrounds staff, and the community at large.

We considered the advice of local experts and authorities when making this tough decision. Collectively, we reviewed the State of Missouri’s business re-opening guidelines and consulted with the Missouri State Fairgrounds and the Administrator of Pettis County Public Health to seek guidance related to large public gatherings, such as the Midwest Stud Ram Sale. Unfortunately, the confirmed cases of COVID-19 are continuing to increase in Pettis County and the surrounding counties, and local restrictions will remain tighter than those for other areas of Missouri for the foreseeable future.

See the attached press release for full details on cancellation and plans for next year.

We will greatly miss seeing you all this summer, but will look forward to getting the sheep family together in 2021!

Glad to hear..I was wondering I got that email about 1:00pm today🤨

Thank you for the heads up

Y'all get ready for 2021 National Show!!We are saddened to report that Wool Market has been cancelled. Given the uncertainty around the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis, it was the best (and safest) decision. Thank you for your patience while this difficult decision went through the proper channels at the Town of Estes Park.

We'll see you in 2021 (June 10-13)! Stay safe and well, everyone! (and get plenty of fiber - keeps you healthy!)
