ISU Extension Brings “Women Managing Farmland” to Charles City

Farmland leases, land stewardship and farm transitions are among the topics to be covered in “Women Managing Farmland: Today and Tomorrow” coming to Charles City next week.

ISU Extension and Outreach Farm and Agribusiness Management Specialist Melissa O’Rourke says more women than ever are in control of farmland in Iowa.

O’Rourke says, while women have always played an important role in farming, a variety of factors over the years have changed that role.

O’Rourke says the “Women Managing Farmland” conference is a great networking opportunity from 11 a.m. to 1 :30 p.m. Wednesday, January 12th at the Floyd County Museum. The program is free and includes a light lunch.

Pre-registration is required by Monday, June 10th with the Floyd County Extension Office in Charles City.
