The theme of the fourth Women in Agriculture Conference to be held Feb. 11 at the Renfro Center in Tonkawa will be "Women in Agriculture-the Heart of the Farm." The conference will recognize the many roles that women play in today's agricultural community and provide these women with management skills that are needed to make informed business and family decisions.
Keynote speakers include Francie Tolle, new Oklahoma State Director of the Farm Service Agency and Mark Gibson, Kay-Noble County District Attorney. Morning and afternoon break-out sessions will be offered on Starting a Horticultural Market Garden, Internet Skills to Enhance the Farm, Going Green on the Farm-Saving Energy and Our Environment, Getting What You Want in Business Dealings, Heart Healthy Cooking, Finding Balance Amongst the Chaos-Family Relations on the Farm, and the Basics of Crop Insurance.
This year's four featured "Women in Ag," Mary Ellen Wooderson and Carole Muchmore from Kay County and Jane Imgarten and Wyonna Passow from Noble County will be honored during the conference's catered luncheon. AmericanAgCredit of Ponca City is again sponsoring these featured women's registration. Each registered guest will receive a goodie bag and door prizes will be given away throughout the day with a big doorprize given away at the conclusion of the conference. A variety of informational and vendor booths of interest to women may be visited during the conference including skin care, crafts, gourmet cooking items, government agencies, financial institutions and women's health care.
