Please join us January 29-31 for the Women in Ag Programs for 21st Century Farms and Ranches virtual conference. Supported by a USDA-BFRDP Educational Enhancement grant, this online conference will offer a combination of presentations, panel discussions and interactive sessions, all geared to helping participants deliver engaging and effective programs for beginning women farmers.

Why attend? This three-day online conference will feature information, tips and tools you can use to deliver more engaging and effective programs for beginning women farmers and ranchers. Sessions are organized around five core themes: business scale and profitability; evaluating programs; leadership; legal issues; and safety, mechanization and ergonomics. Visit the conference website to see the conference schedule and descriptions of each day’s workshops, and learn about the keynote speakers and session presenters.

Who should attend? The conference will cover a broad range of topics relevant to agricultural educators and service providers from across the US. We expect people who work for Extension, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and agribusiness to attend. Farmers and ranchers who offer farmer training programs will also find sessions relevant to their programs.

Where: Online. Join from your desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. All sessions will be recorded, so you can join live or watch the recordings as your schedule permits.

Cost: $35 for registrations received by Dec. 19, 2018, then $50 starting Dec. 20. The fee includes access to all sessions, plus downloads of supplemental resources and material.
