Register Now for the NFU Virtual Women’s Conference Jan 17-18, 2021
The number of women farmers and ranchers has grown significantly over the last several decades. It’s exciting to see better gender representation in agriculture, but because the industry was established when the vast majority of primary farm operators were men, women farmers still face unique barriers when it comes to accessing land, acquiring loans, and finding appropriately sized tools and machinery.
To address these and other concerns, National Farmers Union (NFU) hosts a conference specifically for women and nonbinary farmers every year. This year’s conference, which will be held virtually on January 17 and 18, will cover a variety of subjects including business management, marketing, cooperative development, succession planning, food safety, and leadership. In addition to gaining relevant skills, attendees will also go home with a network of women farmers across the country they can reach out to throughout the year.
