ISU Extension and Outreach Delaware County Hosting Women Managing Farmland Program on January 11

ISU Extension and Outreach Delaware County will host “Women Managing Farmland: Today and Tomorrow” on Tuesday, January 11th.

Women own nearly half of the farmland in Iowa – about 47% of all acres.  And of all the land leased to farm operators, women own about 55% of those acres.  The influence of women farmland owners plays an increasing role in decisions that impact Iowa agriculture.  This one-session program offers resources toward meeting the challenges and opportunities faced by women landowners and also seeks information to aid in designing future programs designed to meet the needs of these farmland owners.

This FREE one session program will offer valuable resources that will help meet the challenges and opportunities women landowners face.  The program will also gather insight and information in designing future programs to meet the needs of women landowners.

Registration and light refreshments at 1:00 pm. Program will run from 1:30-3:30 pm in the FarmTek Meeting Room in Dyersville.

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Farmland Leases: Legal Basics
  • Land Stewardship: Resources for soil & water conservation strategies
  • Farm Transition: Considerations for the future, family dynamics
  • Feedback & planning: Take time to share needs and interests
  • Conversation and Networking – connect with other women landowners
