Thirsty area residents gather at the Busted Knuckle on Glasgow's south side.

Our own Busted Knuckle Brewery has received a grant for $39,250 for brewing equipment and to assist with the expansion of the brewery in Glasgow.

Governor Steve Bullock and the Agriculture Development Council announced over $600,000 in grants and loans were provided to agricultural businesses and organizations across Montana. "Agriculture is the backbone of Montana's economy and it's important that we continue to invest in the industry that supports thousands of good-paying jobs for hard-working Montanans and their families," said Governor Bullock. "This funding will support growth and diversification throughout the agriculture industry, by adding value to Montana's high-quality agriculture products in new and innovative ways."

A total of 17 businesses and organizations were awarded $509,701 in grants and $140,000 in loans through the Growth Through Agriculture (GTA) program, which was established by the legislature to strengthen and diversify Montana's agricultural industry. The grants and loans through the GTA program are awarded by the Agriculture Development Council, a seven-member committee appointed by the Governor.

"We had many great proposals during this funding cycle and we are very excited about the projects that were funded. It's definitely an exciting time for Montana agriculture," said Agriculture Development Council Chair Amy Kellogg. "The projects are a great cross-section of the diverse nature of Montana's agriculture industry."
