Who We Are
MGGA is a commodity specific organization primarily representing the interests of wheat and barley growers. We use the contacts and experience gained over the past 60 years to affect the laws, regulations and rules that we farm by. We, along with the National Association of Wheat Growers and the National Barley Growers Association, have become an influential commodity organization in our state and country. We use that influence to make things happen.
In Montana, the embryo of “self-help” market development began in the mid-1950’s with the organization of the Montana Grain Growers Association. A consolidation of three “crop improvement” groups (Southeast, Northeast and “Triangle” area grain producers), MGGA was to emerge as the rallying point for those Montana wheat farmers too impatient to sit and wait for “someone else to do it.”
MGGA is one of 22 states that belong to the National Association of Wheat Growers and one of 7 states that make up the National Barley Growers Association. MGGA has two board members on each of these national organizations headquartered in Washington, DC.
The Montana Grain Growers Association is an organization of Montana grain producers who, by combining their strengths, voices, and ideas, are working to insure a better future for themselves, their industry and the consumer.
Using a strong and credible voice, Montana Grain Growers Association will lead Montana producers to a secure and profitable future.
