Women in Ag Network

The Women in Ag Network is a collaboration between University of Minnesota Extension and Minnesota's Farm Service Agency. The Network provides educational opportunities and events that enhance leadership, management and production skills for women working in agriculture. Our goal is to connect individuals to relevant, research-based education and to each other. 

Women in Ag Network events typically combine peer group discussions and formal classes. All are welcome.

Yearly events include the Women in Ag Conference, usually held in February, a summer tour and a December workshop.

You can stay connected with us via our Facebook page, through the Agricultural Business Management News and by signing up for email alerts below.

For more information, contact Susanne Hinrichs, Extension educator, at susanneh@umn.edu  or 218-828-2274.
