Women in Ag conference 2024

The inaugural Women in Agriculture conference held in the Frontier Extension District brought together 70 individuals with a common goal of exploring topics relevant to today’s agriculture industry. Participants from seven counties in east central Kansas had the opportunity to learn from experts in agricultural advocacy, land lease basics, coping skills and building resiliency, FSA/NRCS programs, crop and livestock insurance, and grain marketing. In addition to the Frontier Extension District, the March 20th conference was sponsored by the Conservation Districts in Franklin and Osage counties, the Farm Bureau Associations in Franklin and Osage counties, the Kansas Association of Conservation Districts, Ottawa Coop, and Frontier Farm Credit. Due to the generosity of sponsors, there was no charge for registration or lunch, which made for a terrific day focused on learning!
