The 24th Women in Agriculture (WIA) Conference was hosted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Agricultural Economics Feb. 26-27, 2009. Over 350 women participated, coming from Nebraska, as well as California, Colorado, North Carolina, Kansas, Iowa and South Dakota. The main goal of the conference was to heighten the womens' skills and help them gain knowledge to take back to their agricultural operations. A variety of workshop sessions along with keynote speakers hopefully spurred the participants to be proactive in their thinking about their operations.
