“Women and Farming” will be a panel presentation by four women at Lyons State Bank Community Room at 7 p.m., January 14, 2016. The presentation is part one of the Rice County Historical Society’s lecture series on agriculture in Central Kansas and complements the “Agricultural Options” exhibit. The panel members are Susan Griffin, Carolyn Lundstrom, Margaret Scheufler, and Penny Wires. The women will explore the unique historical ties that each of them have with their farms. Members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask the panelists questions regarding their experiences on farms. Today, 28 percent of the farms in the United States are managed by women.
This presentation will be followed by two others. On Thursday, February 11, the utilization of technology on farms will be the topic. On Friday, March 4, the future of farming will be addressed.
