(Ames, Iowa) November 27, 2017—Landus Cooperative invites its female members and customers to participate in the company’s inaugural women in agriculture event “Ventures: Connections & Conversations in Ag” Jan. 5-6, 2018.

The two-day event will offer actionable insights, on-farm tools, and opportunities to network with other customers and industry experts while getting better acquainted with the business resources available to them. Non-members and industry partners are also welcome to attend.

Workshop participants can select from a variety of breakout sessions including beginner and advanced grain marketing seminars, succession planning, and how to better utilize precision agronomy data. During the general session, they’ll hear firsthand from a panel of women who have had to take on a leadership role on the farm in a session titled “What I Wish I Had Known.”

“Ventures isn’t just about inspiring women to take a more active role in their operations. It’s also about arming them with the business tools and cooperative resources to make it happen,” explained Janette Smith, Ventures co-chair and the company’s senior grain marketing advisor who has more than 25 years of experience. “Landus Cooperative is proud to bring together our own team of experts along with our industry partners to work directly with female farmers seeking out ag conversations, education, and decision-making support.”
