The sixth annual Wisconsin Ag Women’s Summit date is set for March 4-5 at the Madison Marriot West in Middleton, Wis. Registration for the premier women’s event is now open and available online. The Summit will kick off with the announcement of the 2016 AgVocate of the Year. The award will recognize a Wisconsin ag woman who has gone above and beyond to tell the story of Wisconsin agriculture with those around her. Sponsoring the award is Wisconsin agriculture broadcaster Pam Jahnke, the Fabulous Farm Babe.
The event’s opening session will include a multi-generation panel of women in agriculture discussing important topics to women and the agriculture community, moderated by news reporter, Amy Pflugshaupt. Closing keynote speaker Jerry Apps will engage attendees through his story telling and share tips on how to capture personal farm family stories.
Fifteen additional breakout sessions will address farm-focused business topics including: succession planning and trusts; consumer conversations; agriculture legislation; farm safety; ag efficiencies; insurance education for young adults and those planning ahead for assisted care; and online safety. Lighter topics include: eating and feeding busy farmers and family on the go; straw bale and container gardening; hosting a farm tour; DIY farmhouse projects; and tips on planning and maintaining a beautiful landscape. 
Register by the Feb. 3 early bird deadline to save $25 on the conference fee. The final registration deadline is Feb. 26.
