Marias River Livestock Association has been an active supporter of the Ag community since 2012. We are a voice for local producers and sponsor local meetings to keep our community informed.
The association came together with the purpose of supporting the livestock industry through education for the public on agriculture issues, promoting agriculture legislation and informing the association members of issues that may affect their operations. One of our key goals is to promote interest in livestock production and agriculture to our youth. MRLA considers our youth are most important crop.
With all these goals in mind, MRLA holds multiple informative meetings open to the public and sponsors events for our four county area.
