Women in Agriculture Conference

By: Pauline Van Nurden, Extension Educator

University of Minnesota Extension is hosting a Women in Agriculture Conference on February 18, 2016 at the Kelly Inn, St. Cloud.  This inaugural event  will be a day of learning and networking for women involved in agriculture in the region.  Registration begins at 9 am, with the conference convening from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm.

Breakout sessions will feature farm communications and relations; farm transition & estate planning; farm payroll & tax planning; and the farm image.  Topics throughout the day will encourage women to learn, lead, manage, and network – all which will benefit their farm operation.
