On October 14-16th, nine FFA members attended the annual Women in Agricultural conference where they benefitted from all kinds of business and agriculture information.
FFA Officer Madison Butler said, “During KWIA (Kentucky Women in Agriculture), we experienced new things and learned about how women have a significant role in agriculture. We were able to listen to a speaker from 5 Mary’s Farm, in California which is owned by Mary Heffernan. She talked about her journey with their family business and overcoming her struggles to develop her farm.”
“We were also able to have dinner with former Governor Paul Patton, volunteer at the Dare to Care Food Bank, tour two farms, and so much more. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to any female FFA member who has the opportunity to attend,” concluded Butler.
