Wyoming Women in Ag Symposium November 20
For 15 years, the Wyoming Women’s Ag Symposium has educated and entertained rural women involved in agriculture! On Nov. 20, join us at 6 p.m. at the Petroleum Club in Casper for a sandwich buffet and cash bar. At 7 p.m., Paul Starrs, author of “Let the Cowboy Ride,” will discuss ranching and how it fits into the “New West.” Ranching still matters!
This event is free, but we would appreciate a heads up that you plan to attend. Folks in town for the AgXpo are invited to join us.
The Symposium on Nov. 21, begins with registration at 8 a.m. at the Three Trails Room at the Casper Events Center. The cost is $20 including lunch, or $25 after Nov. 14.
At 9 a.m., the Keynote Speaker is Karen McCaa, addressing the importance and power of a positive attitude. “There’s very little difference between all of us, but that little difference makes a big difference and it’s our attitude.”
Breakout sessions include:
Terry Cleveland, “Predator Management, what’s legal and what’s not” plus he will answer our wildlife questions.
Cole Ehmke “Starting Your Own Business in Wyoming”, the tools you will need to diversify and where you can get them.
Karen McCaa “Building Meaningful Relationships” and the skills needed.
Panel discussion with Andy Rose on “Alternative Energies: Options for your ranch ” wind, solar and geothermal”.
Lunchtime entertainment is Andy Nelson, cowboy poet and humorist.
