Today’s Agriculture Environment Women’s Seminar


Are you a landowner or a female farmer who would like to learn more about the economics of your farming operation? Plan to join us for an upcoming seminar set to take place at the Ye Old Underground Inn in Princeton on Friday, March 15.  The seminar will begin at 10:00 a.m.  and conclude with lunch.

Plan to join us for our sixth annual Lady Landowner seminar. We have invited guest speakers to discuss important topics such as:

  • Dr. Michael Rosmann, PhD., Ag Behavioral Health. Dr. Rosmann is a farmer and psychologist who has devoted most of his professional life to understanding and improving the behavioral health of people involved in agriculture. His discussion addresses how farmers, their families, employees, business partners and communities can cope with stress while offering resources you can use in the future.
