Agriculture Deputy Secretary Krysta Harden speaks at a Women in Ag Panel hosted at North Dakota State College of Science facility in Fargo, ND

Women have been a critical part of farm and ranch operations across the country—and around the globe—for centuries. But now, as women in agriculture, we have a unique opportunity to be the change we want to see in our industry.  We must build on the incredible legacy of stewardship, innovation, and productivity and help one another succeed now and moving into the future. 

Whether it is a farm business that feeds the world, land that you leave better than you found it, or a relationship that empowers and supports your community, industry, and neighbors—there are many ways to build and grow your contribution to agriculture. The time is now for each of us to step up to the plate and take on these challenges.
