all hands inNebraska Extension, in partnership with USDA Farm Service Agency and USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service, is offering the inaugural “North Central Nebraska Women in Ag” event in Valentine on Dec. 16.

Inspired by Annie’s Project, this program has been developed for female agriculture landowners, farmers, ranchers and industry professionals looking to connect with other women in agriculture.  The theme for the 2019 North Central Women in Ag is “Stronger Together.”

There will also be presentations from Kay Hand on Farm Service Agency Disaster Programs, Deb Witte on Farm Loan Program Overview and Christine Lousias on Natural Resource Conservation Service Programs.

North Central Women in Ag will be held on Monday December 16th from 1:00 PM – 3:30 PM CST at Mid-Plains Community College in Valentine, NE.  There is no fee to attend.
