Women in Agriculture Events

The share of U.S. farms operated by women nearly tripled over the past three decades, from 5 percent in 1978 to 14 percent by 2012, according to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Since 2012, the trend is certainly continuing. Whether it be from inheriting farm ground, continuing the family operation, marrying into a farm family, or a host of other reasons, women find themselves in a position that requires knowledge of managing a farm operation with little background experience or training to do so. K-State Research and Extension recognizes the importance of providing educational experiences designed to deliver information and training on a wide variety of farm management topics, catered directly to farm women. Participants are provided a comfortable environment where they can feel free to ask questions and learn critical skills.
