Meeting planned for women with USDA questions

Women involved in agriculture are invited to attend a series of meetings Monday, June 5, sponsored by the Marion County Farm Service Agency to discuss U.S. Department of Agriculture farm programs and loan opportunities and services available through the county agricultural extension service.

The meetings will be at 9:30 a.m. and again at 7 p.m. in the Hillsboro City Building, 118 E. Grand.

Records indicate more than 1,000 women have interests in Marion County farms as either operators or landlords and attend to many of the aspects and details of managing a farming operation.

Planners hope these meetings will answer questions and increase understanding regarding the options for women in USDA programs.
