Idaho Wool Growers Association leader optimistic about new year

Liz Wilder sees improving conditions and solid long-term opportunity in a sheep industry that continues to diversify as it recovers from COVID-19 challenges.

“There is a lot of optimism in the sheep industry,” the lamb producer and Idaho Wool Growers Association executive director said. “While the drought was hard on many producers, the increase in lamb prices has helped offset costs and created an optimistic outlook overall going into 2022.”
