In Arkansas, and across the nation the number of women in agriculture is growing at a rapid pace. In Arkansas, alone there are nearly 20,000 women operators! In March 2005, the first statewide conference for Arkansas Women in Agriculture was held in Hot Springs.
Over 300 women attended the conference and participated in over 24 sessions broken into three general areas:
1) agricultural production and business skills, 2) family, business and community management plans and 3) just for women topics.
The conference was a huge success! By popular demand we are now planning the second Arkansas Women in Agriculture conference for March 6-7, 2006 at the Hot Springs Convention center. Click on these links to view 2005 conference proceedings, conference program, sponsors, and pictures.
