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:
Feb. 4-5, 2008
Swan Lake Resort
5203 Plymouth-LaPorte Trail
Women working on the family farm or working in the agribusiness industry are encouraged to attend.
Topics on the Agenda
The younger generation is another target of this year’s conference. Say conference planners, “the hope is to integrate the younger generation into agriculture and focus on niche markets that an operation may be able to take advantage of.”
A few other topics to be covered at the conference include:
- Creating a winery
- Arthritis and agriculture
- Public relations training for your operation (Read more now about one way to promote your farm business.)
- Engaging generations
- Farm safety for kids (Read more now about farm safety.)
- Wind energy
- Professional farm management. Is it right for you? (Read more now about becoming a farm entreprenuer>>)
Early registration deadline is Jan. 16.
