South Dakota Women in Agriculture

PO Box 44 | Sturgis, SD | 57785

Our mission is to educate women who are making a difference in rural America. To accomplish this, we started an annual conference more than 15 years ago to help bring women together in an inviting, educational setting. We focus not only on agricultural topics, but also on providing networking opportunities and personal development. Women from South Dakota and surrounding states are invited to attend the conference.
