Associate Membership


The Montana Wool Growers Association was established in 1883, making it the oldest agriculture organization in the state of Montana. MWGA advocates for, and works on behalf of, Montana’s farm and ranch interests, namely the lamb and wool community and the rights of private property owners. MWGA also seeks to promote the economic health of Montana and our agriculture industry and the Montana communities, businesses, and people supported by agriculture.

We at MWGA are excited about continuing to work for our Producer and Associate members here in the great state of Montana, and providing representation on the national level as well. With your support, all of our work is made possible to help represent the state’s oldest Ag community.
