LANGDON, N.D. (January 31, 2013) – Women in agriculture play a critical role as advocates of agriculture, in addition to management and on-farm duties. Women in the Northern Plains can learn how to become better “agvocates” from Sarah Bedgar Wilson, a fifth-generation farmer on a mission to provide positive information about agriculture and empowering attendees to pass it on.
Bayer CropScience and InVigor® canola will host a Ladies Breakfast at Canola Day in Langdon, N.D., featuring Wilson as the guest speaker.
In addition, to Wilson’s passionate talk about farming and farm life, attendees of the Ladies Breakfast will learn about InVigor’s More for Everyone program. The More for Everyone program gives canola farmers the opportunity to nominate a non-profit organization in their community for a monetary award. Attendees will hear about past program winners and learn how the funding works from a local Bayer representative.
