The National Farmers Union and Rocky Mountain Farmers Union are holding a virtual women’s conference on Sunday, January 17, and Monday, January 18, for women involved in agriculture production.
The women’s conference will cover many subjects ranging from business management and marketing to cooperative development, succession planning, food safety, and leadership. Those attending the conference will receive relevant skills and a network of women farmers nationwide.
The number of women farmers and ranchers has increased greatly over the course of the past few decades. Women farmers still face barriers when it comes to accessing land, acquiring loans, and finding appropriately sized tools and machinery since the industry was established when the majority of farmers were men.
Rocky Mountain Farmers Union (RMFU) has arranged a few scholarships for anyone considering attending the women’s conference.
