The Role Of Women In Agriculture

The Montana Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership program strives to change the perceptions about agriculture, family farms and ranches and about the role of women in agriculture. Changing those perceptions through direct contact, educational programming, leadership development programs, speaking out for our industry, and recognizing the unlimited possibilities for women in agriculture.
