Each year, the conference Women in Agriculture: The Critical Difference brings together women who are involved in production agriculture and agribusiness. The conference is designed to provide women information about the management of their agricultural business. This year the conference was held on September 13 - 14 at the Kearney Holiday Inn. The conference had over 400 ag women in attendence from Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa and Australia. A delegation of fourteen Australian ag women and men came to learn about Nebraska agriculture. The members arrived in Omaha on September 9th and spent three days touring around Schuyler and attending Husker Harvest Days. After attending the Women in Ag conference, the Aussies visited ag families across the state before leaving for home on September 22.
