NFU Women’s Conference

NFU holds an annual conference aimed at providing women farmers the resources they need to enhance their knowledge of their family farm operation and learn the value of leadership in rural communities and cooperatives. The conference builds on NFU’s experience in offering adult education classes specifically designed for women in agriculture and provides participants with important leadership and management skills, as well as networking opportunities.
