The Hill County Extension Office is your Portal to Montana State University and a wide array of information and educational opportunities. If you cannot find the information you are looking for here, get in touch with me and I will try to find it for you.

We provide educational programs throughout the year. We are also available upon request for specific programs that you may wish to see presented, so if you identify a need that is not being met in an area that can be addressed through education, give us a call. We also try to identify needs in the county and provide programs periodically throughout the year. We advertise these programs through popular media outlets and informational flyers. If you would like to provide input into programming please contact the extension office at 406-265-5481 x 233.

Did you know that if Montana ranchers don't sign a producer consent form, Montana will lose local control over the beef checkoff?

Due to a recent court decision, Montana producers have to provide consent for half of the checkoff assessment to be retained in Montana. Without half of the assessment, Montana will no longer have the local control to build demand for beef at home.
