Regardless of your background, farming can be very complicated. And as new technology is continuously being developed to help farmers turn the corner into the next generation, it can be tough to keep up. The Women Landowners Conference aims to answer those complicated questions for a special group of Missouri landowners.
The Conference includes presentations from two women well known to many in Missouri's agriculture community: Brenda Black, Missouri CattleWomen's president and owner of The Word's Out freelance agency, will present: "Were you born in a barn? Life lessons from the barn lot and beyond" and Lane McConnell, owner of Agri-Comm Services, will presentn: "Going social-advancing agriculture into the future."
"In addition to Mrs. Black and Mrs. McConnell, participants will be able to choose three breakout sessions to attend," said Marsha Corbin, a conference organizer. "The sessions will cover a wide variety of agricultural topics including farm business organization structure, understanding financial statements, software for farm records and accounting, strategies for improving cattle operations, USDA programs and how to get organized."
Registration is currently open and costs $15 per attendee for early registration (closing Nov. 2) or $20 at the door. The event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Nov. 8 at the Concordia Community Center.Those interested in attending should call 660-584-8732, Ext. 2 or 660-584-3658.
