Billings Hotel and Convention Center, 1223 Mullowney Ln, Billings, MT

Join us as we celebrate our 20th year at the Billings Hotel & Convention Center in Billings, MT on December 7th-9th, 2022! This is our first in-person conference since 2019. Our focus this year is about getting Back to our Roots, and talking about soil & range health, cover & specialty crops, livestock, vegetables and the root of the matter as it relates to organic agriculture in Montana.

The MOA Conference offers numerous networking and learning opportunities featuring numerous speakers, fun & entertainment, and lots of great, organic food. Speakers will cover topics in organics such as cattle marketing, weed control, crop rotations, soil & range health, no-till organic, crop marketing, nutrition, health, regenerative ag, and collaborating with friends!

Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) credits will be available at certain sessions.

This year MOA is part of a regional project for Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development. On December 6th and 7th at the Billings Hotel & Convention Center, the Organic Academy Road Show (OARS) will include sessions covering the benefits and challenges of organic field crop and ruminant production. OARS is sponsored by National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT).
