The Molotschna Agricultural Association was organized at Halbstadt in the Molotschna Mennonite settlement, Ukraine, in 1912. During the first year a membership of 90 was reached. A subdivision of the association was a society concerned with the improvement of the breeds of horses and cattle at Molotschna. The promoter of the association was Johann Wiebe of Ohrloff, a nephew of Johann Cornies. Little is known about the scope of its activities.
