Uinta County Extension to Host Women in Ag Night

Uinta County Extension and Utah State University Extension are hosting a free event celebrating women in agriculture from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, March 8. The event, called Women in Ag night, is a collaboration between University of Wyoming Extension and Utah State University Extension.

“This program is designed to start conversations about women’s involvement within the agricultural industry, brainstorm ideas, and give this group of women a community and a group of like-minded individuals,” says McKenna Julian, Uinta County agriculture and natural Resources educator.

The night will feature three speakers talking about their experience in the agriculture industry. The first two speakers are FFA advisor and ranch wife Malinda Broadbent and Utah State University Extension educator and ranch wife Katelyn Barsnick. The third speaker, Marie McClaren, will share a talk titled “A Sheepherder’s Story”.

Julian adds, “We hope that the presenters and allowing this group just to get together will help build relationships amongst women and inspire individuals to be very active in all aspects of ag.”

The event will be held at the Beeman-Cashin Building at 35 10th Street in Evanston. Dinner is provided. Families and people of all genders are welcome to attend.

RSVPs for the Women in Ag night are requested by March 5. To RSVP, contact Uinta County Extension at (307) 783-0570.
