The Women in Ag is a two-day conference open to anyone interested in agriculture in the northeastern area of North Carolina and will be held on March 22-23, 2019, at the East Carolina Agricultural and Education Center (1175 Kingsboro Road, Rocky Mount). Primarily led by women, experienced extension agents, specialists, and industry volunteers will share valuable knowledge and provide hands-on training to allow women to gain the confidence and ability in a comfortable environment to be active participants in agriculture.

We will cover a wide variety of topics – with safety on the farm being a main focus throughout – such as:

– Sprayer Calibration
– Beef Quality Assurance
– Tractor Maintenance
– Trailer Safety and Backing
