2017 Conference

The 2017 Women in Agriculture Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn Convention Center in Kearney, NE on Thursday and Friday, February 23-24.

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Ron Hanson, professor emeritus of agricultural economics. He will share his own experiences with the challenges of farm succession and provide ideas on how to develop a succession plan and protect your farm or ranch legacy. The capstone speaker is Amanda Freund, a young Connecticut dairy farmer. She encourages women across generations to connect and become part of the agricultural community. Over 30 workshops are planned, many focusing on surviving the economic downturn.

Listen to Cheryl Griffith discuss the conference on KRVN Radio or watch her on Pure Nebraska.

We hope you can join us for inspiration, knowledge and friendship! Registration is now open.
