The Montana Stockgrowers Association will hold its 126th Annual Convention and Trade Show at the Crowne Plaza hotel and the MetraPark in Billings, Dec. 16 to 18. This year, the convention will be held in conjunction with the Chase Hawks Memorial Association's 16th Annual Rough Stock Rodeo on Dec. 18, with rodeo cowboys and rough stock coming directly from the just-concluded National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas. Proceeds from the rodeo benefit the Chase Hawks Memorial Association Community Crisis Fund which provides short-term assistance to families facing an immediate crisis. Discounted tickets for the rodeo and other events will be available for MSGA members.
"We are very excited to be partnering with the Chase Hawks Memorial Association this year," said Tom Hougen, MSGA president. "It seemed like a natural fit for both associations to come together to enjoy camaraderie and a great rough stock rodeo for a good cause."
MSGA's convention will be a mix of business meetings, policy discussions, educational seminars, and entertainment. MSGA business and committee meetings will be held on Dec. 16 at the Crowne Plaza. The convention will then move to MetraPark on Dec. 17, for the Opening General Session, Second Reading of Resolutions, Northern Ag Network Lunch, Pfizer Cattlemen's Colleges, John Rose Stock Dog Clinics, MSGA Top Hand Club Reception, and the popular Trade Show. Dec. 18 will feature the Inspirational Breakfast, Women of West Fair, MSGA Business Meeting, Trade Show, more Pfizer Cattlemen's Colleges and President's Lunch. During the President's Lunch, one lucky MSGA member will win a 2011 Ford Super Duty truck thanks to the great partnership between MSGA and the Montana Ford Stores.
