A Little of our History
The Montana Mohair Producers organization was basically a spinoff from a small newsletter that was produced by two ladies in the Missoula area. It was called the Dark Cedar Letter. Dee Ball and Diane Olsen gathered assorted information concerning fiber producing animals. Subscribers to the newsletter also contributed. It was a great help to many of us. As the number of Angora goat breeders increased in Montana it became apparent that we needed an organization to help with the gathering and shipping of the annual mohair clip. We also needed to have means of exchanging related information between breeders. Dee Ball spearheaded the formation of the organization.
Originally the organization was intended to be restricted to Montana residents only. It was soon realized that membership should be open to any persons who wanted to participate.
