Allamakee County 4-H’ers participate in FarmHer event ...

Five Allamakee County 4-H’ers traveled to the FFA Enrichment Center in Ankeny Friday, November 15 for the Grow by FarmHer Conference. Pictured above, left to right, are Claire Opperman, Diana Davison, Shelby Wyninger, Alaina Gebel and Kaylee Gibbs. Grow is a series of events that will inspire and empower young women in agriculture to take an active role in the agriculture industry. A total of 350 young women ages 16-22 with an interest in agriculture had the opportunity to participate in inspirational and informational experiences as a group as well as meaningful one-on-one connections with women ag leaders. At Grow by FarmHer, young women got a real-life look at what they need to do to be successful ag leaders, while gaining the encouragement and making the connections that are pivotal to helping them grow in agriculture.
