Montana Stockgrowers Annual Convention

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Thursday night is the first night of the Montana Stockgrowers Annual Convention and Trade Show.

The convention attracted more than 800 ranchers this year. Meetings focus on policy issues that affect Montana ranchers. The Montana Stockgrowers Association works to represent ranchers across the state.

"So we cover a lot of those policy issues," said Ryan Goodman, MSGA manager of communications. "We also have a lot of guest speakers that work with the ranchers and help them to learn about tools they can use to manage the ranches and really enhance their skills when they're producing cattle here in the state."

The trade show features more than 100 vendors from across the ranching industry, such as equipment and insurance options. Organizers hope ranchers will become more engaged in the policy making process after attending the convention.

The trade show ends tomorrow at 6 PM and is open to the public. If you would like to be a part of the convention, registration is still open for Friday and Saturday at the Holiday Inn Grand Montana.
