Department of Ag to host Ag Caucus luncheon

The Montana Department of Agriculture, in conjunction with several sponsors including Montana Farmers Union, Montana Farm Bureau, Montana Stock-growers Association and the Montana Grain Growers Association, will be hosting a welcome luncheon for the agriculture caucus on Thursday, Jan. 5 at 12 p.m. in the old Supreme Court chambers in the state capitol.

“This is a really great opportunity for the ag caucus to get together and hear from industry partners,” said Representative Alan Redfield, chair of the House Agriculture Committee. “Agriculture is the backbone of Montana’s economy, so it’s important that we as legislators know all we can about the issues facing the industry.”

The MDA holds an ag caucus welcome luncheon at the beginning of every legislative session. The luncheon brings legislators and industry groups together in a bipartisan fashion to discuss the issues facing Montana’s agriculture industry.

The Montana Department of Agriculture’s mission is to protect producers and consumers, and to enhance and develop agriculture and allied industries. For more information on the department, visit
