In this paper we extend results concerning conservativity and the existence of -finite measures to random transformations which admit a countable relative Markov partition. We consider random systems which are locally fibre-preserving and which admit a countable, relative Markov partition. If the system is relative irreducible and satisfies a relative distortion property we deduce that the system is either totally dissipative or conservative and ergodic. For conservative systems, we provide sufficient conditions for the existence of absolutely continuous -finite invariant measures.
