Montana Stockgrowers Association 

MSGA Statement on Yellowstone bison being transported to Fort Peck from 

Errol Rice, executive vice president  


“MSGA is disappointed to learn of a deal being signed between Fort Peck and the state of Montana for the relocation of bison without any of the concerned parties having the opportunity to review the agreement before action was taken. Bison management and bison relocation is a top priority for MSGA. During the 2011 Montana Legislature, we worked hard to ensure the passage of SB 212, which requires FWP to adopt a management plan before bison are translocated anywhere in the state of Montana.MSGA members also passed policy in 2011 declaring that MSGA opposes bison relocation, but should the state decide to proceed with a relocation proposal, it should adequately reflect the intent of SB 212. It is unfortunate that this deal was done without the opportunity for more local input and due process.  We have requested a draft of the agreement signed from the state of Montana to review on behalf the ranching community, especially to ensure that all elements of SB 212 were addressed and disease monitoring protocol are followed. MSGA leadership met with the concerned landowners involved in litigation on this issue on Feb. 29 in Chinook to discuss concerns of the Fort Belknap relocation proposal. We will remain very much engaged in this issue moving forward, especially to address private property rights concerns of our members and to evaluate the next steps in MSGA’s actions.”
