Breeders of purebred cattle are truly making an investment in becoming seed stock producers for the beef cattle industry. As such, it is very important cattle breeders in this segment of the industry identify closely with their breed’s association to help shape the direction of their breed and to be aware of current developments.

The obvious, immediate reason for membership is to receive membership benefits.
Members receive services and are able to participate in MHA events  that  non-members do not;  in addition to being able to vote.
association issues and nominate and  elect directors.

If you are not already a member of the Montana Hereford Association, fill out the membership application link, or contact the MHA Secretary at 406-240-2587 if you have additional questions. When you have completed the application, send it with the proper fee to the Association.
Membership runs on the calendar year.
