Kingman County and several other south central Extension Councils have joined together to offer a daylong workshop aimed at reaching women who are involved in agriculture. The workshop is title ‘Women Involved in Agriculture’ and is an extension of the ‘Annie’s Project’ which Kansas State University has been involved with for several years.
Statistics show an increase in female landownership above 50% and estimated to increase. Women have always been involved in agriculture, but more are taking an active role in the farm management.  The goal of this workshop is to help educate women on a variety of farm management topics.
The planned workshop is scheduled for Saturday, October 27th in Pratt, Kansas. It will be held at the Pratt County fairgrounds, and will begin at 9:00 a.m. Registration is $20.00 if received by October 19th, and $30.00 at the door. The workshop covers a wide range of sessions, designed to offer something for those involved in livestock production, crop production, and for women who are landowners trying to understand lease laws.
For more information, or  for a registration form please contact Matt Clark at 620-532-5131 or mkc@ksu.edu.
