The Kentucky Women in Agriculture Conference exposed students to various parts of agriculture and expanded their knowledge on the impact of Kentucky's agriculture on the world around them. During this conference many powerful women spoke about how agriculture affected their lives and how it still continues to change daily. They met women who lived in various places across Kentucky and shared ideas on how we can change agriculture in the future. They also went on several tours in which they visited two family owned dairy farms, one of which had two robotic milkers and the other which still uses people to milk their cows.
