Thursday, January 27, 2011

The 2011 edition of the Women Managing the Farm Conference scheduled Feb. 11-12 in Wichita, is filling quickly, said Kristy Archuleta, co-chair of the planning committee.

Previous conferences have proved popular with women engaged in many aspects of agriculture, according to Archuleta, assistant professor in Family Studies and Human Services. She has helped coordinate the conference for seven years.

The conference presents a variety of timely topics and opportunity to network with others who share similar interests, challenges and opportunities.

Cost to attend the two-day conference is $150; registration includes conference sessions, materials, socials and most meals.

For registration and more information, visit the Women Managing the Farm website.

The women's conference is sponsored by the Kansas Soybean Commission; Kansas Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture; Farm Credit Associations of Kansas; Kansas Wheat; Kansas Agri-Women; USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA), Kansas State University School of Family Studies and Human Services, and K-State Research and Extension, KFRM 550 AM, ProAg Insurance, and Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops at K-State.
