HELENA, Montana—The 68th Session of the Montana State Legislature is underway and Montana Farm Bureau is hosting a Calling on the Capitol February 6-7 in Helena. The event provides an opportunity for farmers and ranchers to see the Montana Legislature in action, receive issues updates, and attend meetings with Montana’s leadership.

The event includes meetings with Lieutenant Governor Kristen Juras, Attorney General Austin Knudsen and the Senate and House Agriculture Committee chairs, as well as leadership in the Department of Agriculture, Department of Livestock, and Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.
