The Mississippi State University Extension Service and its partners are providing a two-day educational and networking opportunity for women involved in agriculture in Mississippi.

The Mississippi Women for Agriculture 2014 annual conference will be Feb. 20-21 in the Bost Extension Center at MSU.

The meeting begins at 1 p.m. Feb. 20 and ends at 3 p.m. Feb. 21. The agenda includes an annual business meeting, the Dianne Evans Lecture, a tour of the MSU Dairy Processing Unit and Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station Cheese Store and an overview of the events and update on plans for the future of Mississippi Women for Agriculture.

The conference provides educational and networking activities. The organization gives Mississippi women the chance to form friendships, share ideas and develop new ways to make their production agriculture farms and agribusinesses more successful.

Regular adult registration for the conference is $25, or $50 for conference registration and 2014 annual membership. Different packages are available that include life membership, youth and student membership, or conference-only attendance.
