Montana State University Extension, in cooperation with Northwest Farm Credit Services, will host the Montana broadcast of the fifth annual Women in Agriculture Conference on Saturday, March 19.

This one-day webinar is presented remotely by Washington State University Extension and takes place simultaneously at 31 locations throughout Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and Alaska. The conference is interactive and was developed to empower women in agriculture to achieve goals and manage risk through education, networking and technology.

Presenters include Wendy Knopp and Michael Stolp with Northwest Farm Credit Services and Shelly Boschart Davis, a farmer who lives in Oregon. The theme is “Power Up Your Farm.”

The conference will be broadcast in room 231 of Linfield Hall, also known as the CHS Room, on the MSU campus. Local hosts are Kate Binzen Fuller and Keri Hayes with MSU Extension and Aimee Roberts with Northwest Farm Credit Services.

Bozeman is the only Montana conference location. Participation is limited to 40. Early-bird registration, through March 5, is $25. General registration, through March 18, is $30. Lunch will be provided.

Scholarships are available for college agriculture students and beginning farmers, 4-H and FFA members, or those needing assistance. To apply for a scholarship go to http://womeninag.wsu.edu.

A block of hotel rooms at the Best Western Plus Grantree Inn has been reserved for the conference. The cost is $89 plus tax per room. Participants should mention the Women in Ag conference when booking. The hotel will have a shuttle service to bring participants to MSU for the event.
