Montana Wool Growers was established in 1883,
making it the states oldest agriculture organization in Montana. Montana Wool Growers Association advocates for, and works on behalf of, Montana’s farm and ranch interests, namely Montana’s sheep industry. Montana Wool Growers Association also seeks to promote the economic health of Montana and Montana’s agriculture industry and the Montana communities, businesses and people supported by agriculture.
Dues to Montana Wool Growers are $20 per membership plus $.06 per pound of wool (or $.60 per sheep). The $20 covers the cost of the Montana Wool Growers magazine, membership in the American Sheep Industry Association (ASI) and the ASI newsletter that each member receives. The additional six cents per pound is what the Association operates on as it works to improve the opportunities for raising sheep and wool in Montana.
