Caddo County Organizations to Host Conference for Local Women in Agriculture and Small Business

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 14:51:39 CDT

Caddo County Organizations to Host Conference for Local Women in Agriculture and Small Business A Women in Agriculture and Small Business Conference will be held on November 9, 2017. This conference will give attendees a chance to hear motivational speakers, attend informational break-out sessions, and network with others in the area.

The key note speaker for the morning session is Brittany Krehbiel. Brittany is a fifth-generation farmer from Hydro, Oklahoma where her family raises sheep, wheat, peanuts, canola, alfalfa hay, and grain sorghum. Brittany is currently a student at Oklahoma State University where she is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Economics. After graduation in December of 2017, Brittany plans to return home to take over daily management of the farming operation as well as her family’s center pivot irrigation business. Brittany has a strong passion for all facets of agriculture and loves getting to pass that passion along to everyone she meets.

The afternoon session will kick-off with Michelle Miller, “The Farm Babe”. In a world where consumers are bombarded with misinformation and confusing marketing labels, Michelle clears the air and helps people learn from true ag experts with how food is actually produced. Her warm and entertaining approach opens doors and minds. Her powerful and unique messages inspire. Michelle was once a big city girl who bought into a lot of food myths and now works to educate people about the real truth of agriculture. This gives her a unique perspective as someone who can connect with a variety of audiences, from the smallest of towns to the most populated urban areas.

The goal of Women in Agriculture Conference is two-fold; to recognize women for the critical role they play in day-to-day farm and agri-business activities and to provide risk management information and tools so that participants can make informed decisions concerning their agri-business and family.

Registration for the conference is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m. on November 9th at the Caddo Kiowa Technology Center. The registration fee is $15.00. Please pre-register for the conference by contacting Amy at (405) 542-3205. The conference is being coordinated by the Caddo County OSU Extension, Caddo County Natural Resources Conservation Service, Caddo County Farm Service Agency, North Caddo Conservation District, West Caddo Conservation District, and Caddo Kiowa Technology Center. A meal, goodie bag, and chance to win door prizes are included in the cost of registration.
