Western Stock Growers' Association (WSGA)


Western Stock Growers' Association is driven by policy development, focusing on a strong free market approach to the production and marketing of cattle. WSGA's main priority is the protection of the livestock producer by lobbying government through written submissions, briefs and presentations on behalf of the cattle industry. We encourage interaction within industry leaders that promote education and help define philosophical issues within agriculture. We look to our members to promote the enhancement and protection of the environment through sound range management. Please read our news page and position papers.

Our membership is voluntary which ensures that our agenda is member focused. The past 117 years as a voluntary membership organization has made WSGA a strong and effective organization, able to lobby government in an independent fashion. We speak for the industry based on our members' mandate. WSGA has been influential in the development of many policies.

We welcome new members, and you can join our fight for property rights and the use of commerce for market.
