Women in Agriculture Conference

April 13, 2018 @ 8:15 am - 3:30 pm

“Keep Life Simple” is the theme of the annual Women in Agriculture Conference, which will feature information and advice about simplicity and excellence, making meals with a multi-cooker, forage production, youth loans, farming with disabilities, and more.

This year’s conference is scheduled for Friday, April 13, at Sidney, Nebraska. It will run from 8:15 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. at Buffalo Point Restaurant, 638 Cabela Drive.

The conference is intended to help women who are involved in agriculture improve their decision-making, increase understanding, and enhance their well-being in relation to their farm, ranch or agriculture-related business.

The $35 registration fee covers conference materials, breaks, and lunch. Advance registration is due by April 6, after which the fee is $45. Registration forms and more information are available at the Nebraska Extension office at 920 Jackson St. in Sidney; by phone (308) 254-4455; by email to Karen DeBoer, Extension Educator at kdeboer1@unl.edu; or browse to http://ckb.unl.edu/.

“Simplicity with Excellence” is the theme of keynote speaker Tami Lambertson of Scottsbluff. She was born and raised in the Midwest and she and her husband, Tyson, have been married for 18 years and have three children, ages 15, 13, and 11. They serve as lead pastors of The Rock Church.

Balancing the demands of family, work, and community involvement have taught her a lot over the last decade and she has come to live by the motto: Simplicity with Excellence. Simple doesn’t have to mean cheap, or lacking thought or care. Keep things simple, but do it well.
