In Her Boots: Beginning livestock and grazing for women farmers
In Her Boots:  Beginning Livestock and Grazing for Women Farmers
Facilitated by Southwest Badger RC&D in partnership with the MOSES Rural Women's Project. Thanks to our additional partners:  Wisconsin Farmers Union South Central Chapter.

Description:
Spend the day with an inspiring group of women farmers and educators dedicated to transforming our food system.  These day-long, on-farm workshops include a detailed farm tour, lunch and networking opportunities.  With a focus on sharing experiences, stories and ideas, the In Her Boots format builds on the idea that women farmers learn best from each other.  Bring your questions!  Women just starting on their farm or food business dream are especially encouraged to attend.

Are you a beginning woman farmer interested in diversified livestock and managed grazing?  Come for a unique opportunity to explore integrating livestock from a female farmer point of view.  A diversity of livestock will be introduced from a team of seasoned female farmers from hogs to goats to sheep to poultry with a focus on resource sharing between women farmers committed to animals on pasture.  Workshop includes a tour of Dorothys Grange, a farrow to finish hog operation.

Topics covered include:
 Finding mentors
 Land and capital access
 Marketing, value-added products, diversification
 Breed selection
 Ergonomics
 Integrating family into your farm operations

Speakers:
 April Prusia, Dorothys Grange
 Laura Paine, Program Director, Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship
 Gretta Winkelbauer, Grettas Goats
 Kriss Marion, Circle M Farm
 Wendy Warren, Executive Director, Southwest Badger RC&D

More information about In Her Boots:
The workshop will model the "In Her Boots" format: Women-focused agenda, female speakers, and speakers include certified organic female farmers. Anyone is welcome to attend; however, the difference between this workshop and other programming is this covers topics of interest to women not covered elsewhere and focuses on connecting women with each other.
