Calling All Farm Women

Central Kansas Extension District to host 'Women in Ag' series.

The Central Kansas Extension District has teamed up with several agricultural agencies to be a host of the very popular Women in Ag series which is aimed at educating farm women about the daily business workings of the farm or ranch.  "Getting Organized: Keep It or Toss It" will be held on Tuesday, March 29 at the Ottawa County Courthouse meeting room.  Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Starting at 7:00 p.m., Mary Lou Odle, Extension Family Resource Management Agent for the Central Kansas District, will help give some understanding of how to manage farm records and documents including taxes, insurance, contracts, estate plans, leases, and others.  Following Mary Lou's presentation, an expert panel featuring the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Farm Service Agency, American AgCredit, and the Cooperative Extension Service will give an overview of their agencies and the services that they provide.  Dessert, coffee, and tea will be served following the program. 

If you are a woman involved in agriculture as an owner, partner, helper, or absentee landlord, plan to attend this free program.  Pre-registration is requested by Thursday, March 24.  For more information or to RSVP, please contact the CKD Extension Office in Minneapolis at (785) 392-2147 or Salina at (785) 309-5850.
