CHAMPAIGN — Vendors came out to the U of I to talk about why more women should work in agriculture.
There were keynote speakers and a career fair for those who attended. Six hundred high school and college students came for the conference. It was for the “Women Changing the Face of Agriculture” conference.
The event was at the ARC. There were students from local 4H and FFA groups as well. We’re told 30% of farmers are women.
