Women in Agriculture: Making the Critical Difference was the theme for the 29th Nebraska Women in Agriculture (WIA) Conference, February 20-21, 2014 in Kearney, Nebraska. Nearly 350 Nebraska producers attended the conference which focused on educating, advocating and communicating within the agriculture industry. Drought, untimely snowstorms, volatile markets, farm policy indecisions and health care changes brought much uncertainty to Nebraska farmers and ranchers in the past year. One decision can be the critical difference between profit or loss. Many workshops focused on helping p r oducers decide their own comfortable level of risk.
