Women in Ag
Farm Bureau Survey Results

Communicating effectively, establishing and achieving goals and strategic planning ranked highest on a list of important leadership skills for women in agriculture to master, according to a new Farm Bureau survey.

Nearly 2,000 women completed the informal online survey, which was conducted to determine the goals, aspirations, achievements and needs of women in American agriculture today.

Collegiate Chapter Corner

On Saturday, April 18, Beta Xi Chapter had a Basket Auction to raise money for Illinois Ag in the Classroom (IAITC). Small groups of sisters teamed up to create baskets for the auction. There was also a RSO competition where clubs from the ISU Agriculture Department donated baskets, and the club whose basket went for the most money received $100 toward their philanthropy. The 4th annual auction was very successful, and the chapter was able to donate $2,575 to IAITC.
