If you’re a woman involved in agriculture–and within driving distance of north central Indiana–mark your calendar for the eighth annual Midwest Women in Agriculture Conference.

The conference–designed to address personal, family and farm issues that affect women’s lives, families and farm businesses–will be held:

5203 Plymouth-LaPorte Trail
Plymouth, Ind.

Women working on the family farm or working in the agribusiness industry are encouraged to attend.

A few other topics to be covered at the conference include:

Early registration deadline is Jan. 16.
