Leadership & Staff

Montana Stockgrowers Association is led by a volunteer and member-elected Board of Directors and is staffed by five employees based in Helena, Montana.

The board consists of 13 members; two directors from each district and three elected officers. MSGA directors volunteer their time to travel to important industry events and meetings to ensure representation of Montana’s ranching families.

Representatives from the Montana CattleWomen, Young Stockgrowers, Montana Association of State Grazing Districts and the Montana Public Lands Council also hold seats on the MSGA board.
