A stockgrowers association was an organization of cowmen in the Old West of the United States who attempted to restrict entry onto the range by controlling access to limited water supplies.[1]

Some of these organizations still exist, although their functions have changed. Examples include the Wyoming Stockgrowers Association, the Western South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, and the Montana Stockgrower's Association.[citation needed]
