Young Stockgrowers is a committee within the Montana Stockgrowers Association designed to develop tomorrow’s leaders.
Young Stockgrowers is tailored to meet the needs and interests of young cattlemen and women across Montana. Our members are primarily between the ages of 18 and 40 and are interested in learning more about the cattle and beef industries as they return to their ranches, start their careers, or develop new businesses.
Membership is the lifeblood of the Montana Stockgrowers Association and dues revenue from concerned cattle producers drives the activities of this organization year-round. Membership is structured on a “fair-share” basis, with dues dependent upon per head of cattle—both Cow-Calf and Stocker-Feeder—for all cattle-owning members. Young Stockgrower Membership is $75, that is half of a Rancher or Associate Membership, for 3 years or until age 40. A special Student Membership ($20) is available for full-time college students to introduce young producers to the activities and efforts of the Montana Stockgrowers Association. Student members receive the same benefits as ranch members, except they are excluded from voting on policy. Additionally, for non-cattle owners, a non-voting Associate Business Membership is available.
