MDA Extends Oilseed Committee Application Deadline

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – The Montana Department of Agriculture (MDA) has announced the extension of the Oilseed Advisory Committee application deadline.

The deadline was set for Tuesday, March 31 but has now been extended to Thursday, April 30.

Once formed, the Oilseed Advisory Committee will advise MDA on education, marketing and research matters. This committee will also be in charge of proposing a collection and assessment procedure, which will eventually be voted upon by oilseed growers in Montana.

In 2019, MDA received a verified petition from 25 Montana growers asking for the creation of this committee. Upon receiving a unanimous vote after two listening sessions held by MDA, the committee was created.
