To aid women who are helping to grow the nation’s food supply whether by design, marriage or inheritance, the Women Managing the Farm Conference is slated for February 5-6, 2015, in Manhattan, Kansas at the Hilton Garden Inn.
Over the two days of the conference, presentations regarding business planning, health, managing employees and more will be interspersed with opportunities for networking and learning from others attending the conference.
The WMF Conference has been developed for all women involved in an operation from the full-time manager to the absentee landowner needing a bit of insight about managing their investment.
We all know farm profits can be marginal at times. Join Colorado Conservation Tillage Association (CCTA) and local sponsors to learn how to increase farm profits by taking a fresh look at the "margins" of farming. Farm economics, equipment and pest management sessions will be covered. Snacks, lunch and materials included! Don't miss this opportunity to increase your profit margins!
Join us to see what we learned from year one of our 20+ cover crop plots planted in 2014. Other topics will include cover crop water use, soil biology, cover crop effects on row crops, soil health testing, grazing cover crops, and a great producer panel. A free lunch will be provided, but registration is limited so reserve your spot by March 9!
