UMASH was one of the sponsors of the Women’s Agricultural Leadership Conference “Agriculture 2017: Embracing Innovation” at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, MN on April 12, 2017. Diane Kampa, Carrie Klumb and Carol Peterson attended and presented on behalf of UMASH. Carrie Klumb was a featured presenter on the topic Agritourism – The New Frontier, which was well attended by many participants who may be involved or would like to start a side business on the farm.
Carol Peterson presented at the round table mini sessions on the Farm Safety Check initiative and encouraged participants to become the voice and a “champion” for farm safety. UMASH also exhibited many of the educational resources available. This event is a great opportunity to reach out to organizations and individuals with our message and build a stronger network of those committed to safety and health on the farm
