TYNE MORGAN TO HEADLINE WOMEN IN AGRICULTURE CONFERENCE
The Women in Agriculture Conference committee is pleased to announce that Tyne Morgan will headline the 8th annual Women in Agriculture Conference in Rock Island on Thursday, March 14, 2019. Morgan was named the first female host of U.S. Farm Report in 2014. During her address, she will focus on news and policy that is shaping the agriculture industry.
The keynote will be followed by a variety of breakout sessions as well as lunch.
The closing speaker will be Erin Breneman, Farmer and Farrowing Manager of Brenneman Pork. Raised in the suburbs of Chicago, it was only after Brenneman married and moved to her family’ hog operation that her eyes were opened to what she calls “the beautiful world of farming.” She has since become a strong advocate for the industry and for her own family’s products. She will present “Sharing Your Farm Story.”
Registration for the event starts on January 8th. The Conference is sponsored by the Bureau, Carroll, Fulton, Henry, Knox, Lee, Mercer, McDonough, Rock Island, Stark, Stephenson, Warren-Henderson, and Whiteside County Farm Bureaus in Illinois as well as Illinois Farm Bureau, COUNTRY Financial, River Valley Cooperative, University of Illinois Extension and Iowa State University Extension.
