New England Women in Livestock Business

Tue, 10/06/2020 to Thu, 10/15/2020
10:00am – 8:30pm

Virtual Learning Circles

Join UNH Cooperative Extension and partnering states for a two-day focus session where women livestock producers from around New England will tune in virtually to learn how to strengthen communication and improve negotiation skills to become an even more effective employer and business manager. During this program, women producers will have the unique opportunity to work closely in small groups with like-minded farmers from around the region. We are lucky to have UVM Extension Specialist, Mary Peabody, to lead us through this program.

Participants will also have the chance to partake in a facilitated discussion to help shape the curriculum for the upcoming New England Women in Livestock Business virtual conference which will address risks associated with managing a farm business such as, financial planning, market viability, and farm safety. There are three opportunities to participate in these focus sessions with limited space in each session, so pre-registration is required!

Pick from one of the following dates below when you register:

  • Track One, Morning Session—October 6 & 13, 10am-12pm
  • Track Two, Afternoon Session—October 7 & 14, 12:30-2:30pm
  • Track Three, Evening Session—October 8th & 15, 6:30pm-8:30pm
