Women in Agriculture: Our Heritage, Our Present, Our Future was the theme for the 30th Nebraska Women in Agriculture (WIA) Conference, February 26-27, 2015. Nearly 330 Nebras-ka producers and industry professionals attended the conference which focused on educating, ad-vocating and communicating within the agriculture industry. Snowstorms, volatile markets, a new farm bill, severe storms, health care changes and water restrictions brought much uncertainty to Nebraska farmers and ranchers in the past year. The 2015 WIA Conference focused on helping producers evaluate and determine their own comfort level of risk.
