The Montana Department of Livestock (MDOL) is a Montana State agency whose operations are funded by state and federal tax dollars. The MDOL is charged with managing livestock: cows, chickens, pigs, sheep and the like. The MDOL describes themselves as being organized to safeguard the health and food production capacity of the State's animals and poultry by providing for the diagnosis, prevention, control, and eradication of animal diseases, preventing the transmission of animal diseases to man, and addressing other public health risks.

In 1995 the Montana Legislature turned management authority of America's last wild buffalo over to this livestock agency. This arrangement is the ultimate conflict of interest. The livestock industry exerts tremendous power through the MDOL, an arrangement that has resulted in the unnecessary and shameful slaughter of thousands of America's last free-born bison. Buffalo Field Campaign is working to divest the agency of all management authority through the repeal of Montana law 81-2-120, a move that would return management of this iconic species to Montana's wildlife agency, the Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks.
