ISU Extension and Outreach will honor eight women for exceptional contributions to agriculture during the 2016 Farm Progress Show
The shifting, growing role of women in production agriculture signaled the need for Iowa State University Extension and Outreach to create a new program focused on women. Over the last several years, the program has expanded the research-based education specifically designed for and offered to women. The Women in Agriculture program will introduce a special recognition during Farm Progress Show to showcase the lives of eight outstanding Iowa women.
The honorees were selected from applications submitted by ISU Extension and Outreach employees across the state. They demonstrate exceptional contributions to managing and working with livestock and farmland, and providing professional agricultural services.
