Established in 1883, the 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. The association is a proud supporter of the Crazy Mountain Fiber Festival, held each May in Big Timber.
“We joined MWGA in the early 1970s. The annual wool pool meeting was the biggest social event of the year in Big Timber. Since then, it has become more than just social. It is a way to connect with fellow producers. MWGA keeps you informed on local and national issues, keeps you up to date on current markets and trends, and works for the whole sheep industry, no matter what size operation or breed you have. Being a member makes me feel like I have a voice in the sheep industry.”
