From the Oct. 30, 1924 Campbell County Record:

Over 300,000 pounds of the 1925 wool clip in Campbell County has already been sold is the information given out by the Stockmen's Bank. The price contracted for was 43¢ with a dollar a head advance with no interest. It is estimated that about two-thirds of the wool in the county has been sold. The Casper Tribune of a recent date has the following to say on the early contracting of wool: Five million pounds of Wyoming's 1925 wool clip have already been tied up by contract at an average price of 41 cents a pound, according to buyers now in the city. "Wools are being bought in Wyoming at higher prices than in any other section of the country. Choice Montana wools are going at 41 cents and ordinarily they sell at from three to four cents above the wools of this state,” declared William E. Wimer Jr., representing Charles J. Webbs Sons of Philadelphia.
