Wyoming’s economy rests primarily on agriculture, farming, forestry, mining and tourism. The main mineral resources are oil, natural gas, coal (huge reserves) and uranium.

Breeding (cattle, sheep) is practiced extensively (ranching). Wyoming is the first national producer of mutton and wool. Agriculture is a tributary of irrigation. The main crops are fodder plants, sugar beet and cereals (barley, wheat).

Industry

The industries derive essentially from the treatment and transformation of the first mineral and agricultural materials: oil refining, heavy chemistry, industrial mechanics, agri-food (meat, dairy products), industries derived from wood.

Tourism, very developed, rests on places among the most prestigious in the world, such as Yellowstone National Park, the National Park of the Great Beak of the fair, old forts – Fort Laramie, Fort Fetterman – and the old Oregon Trail. Great ski resorts, moreover, were created in Jackson Hole and Bico da Feira Aldeia, on Snow King Mountain and Jackson and on Meadowlark and Worland.
