Women have made invaluable contributions towards the success of Minnesota agriculture. Yet, historically they have not been recognized for it.
That’s why Farmers Union continues to hold Women’s Conferences, both at the national and state levels. We want to bring together our women members to inspire and connect them.
Come to the New Ulm Country Club on June 30 for a day of conversation, education and networking. We have three talented speakers:
- Meg Moynihan, Minnesota Department of Agriculture State Programs Administrator Principal. Meg will speak on overcoming crises, as she did on her Le Sueur County dairy farm two years ago.
- Barbara Heen, Attorney at Law and MFU member. Barb will speak about estate planning basics… and make it fun!
- Sarah Lloyd, Wisconsin Farmers Union Special Projects Coordinator and previous candidate for Congress. Sarah will speak about how women can find more leadership opportunities within Farmers Union and the agriculture community.
Attendees will have plenty of time to get to know one another in between these insightful talks, with a hearty local foods lunch and snacks available. You’ll enjoy the stunning summer scenery of the club as well. You’ll conclude your day feeling empowered and ready to make a difference for women in Farmers Union and all of agriculture. A full agenda can be found here.
After the main sessions, stick around at the club and enjoy socializing with your fellow MFU women. There are plenty of tourist attractions in the New Ulm area, so feel free to explore the area.
The cost for the Women’s Conference is $20; however, if you bring a friend, you can register them for free on here using the discount code “FRIEND.”
