Russell County Government Center–Conference Center

The Women in Agriculture Conference is designed for anyone interested to come learn in an atmosphere where all questions are good questions and welcomed! We are excited to offer youth activities for youth that are 5– 13 years old this year! We also hope youth 14-18 years old join us for our regular sessions. Join us at the roundtable as four local farm women entrepreneurs share their secrets to success while remaining on the farm! We have a diverse agenda that we hope offers something for everyone!
We are especially honored to have Dr. Deborah Reed, University of Kentucky’s College of Nursing, as our special speaker! Dr. Reed is known as the “Farm Nurse.” She has focused on farm safety issues. Dr. Reed will be helping us with our special Farm Safety One-Act Play that will be presented during lunch. The play will be presented by members of the Lee FFA Chapter and will focus on key issues in farm safety. Dr. Reed has been conducting Farm Dinner Theatres throughout Kentucky helping to raise awareness.
