Montana Agri-Women started in 1996 to join with American Agri-Women, to unite women's agricultural organizations and individuals in communication with one another and with other consumers to promote agriculture for the benefit of the American people and the world.
Montana Agri-Women stands to educate our members on the important issues involving the agriculture industry. We use this knowledge to provide the industry with a strong public relations outlet.
