Women are involved in numerous programs at the state and county levels to bolster the effectiveness of Farm Bureau. Farm-city activities, ag-in-the-classroom programs, food-price surveys, commodity promotions and youth contests are some examples of their work.
State Women's Leadership Conference - A statewide women’s leadership conference is held each year, attracting participants from across Kentucky. Sessions deal with current ag issues, farm/home concerns, consumer education and expanding leadership roles.
Food Check-Out Day & Week - A national campaign led by the American Farm Bureau which commemorates the calendar day when the average American family will have earned enough income to pay for the entire year's food supply. With a focus on affordable food in the United States, this campaign provides an excellent opportunity for county Farm Bureaus to show the value of local farmers.
Marketbasket Survey - Grocery store price surveys allow periodic release of news media information on food price factors and food industry trends.
Women's Gold Star Reports and Top County Award - Our Gold Star and Top County Awards Programs are designed to recognize the achievement and success of Farm Bureau Women throughout the state.
National Ag Week - Over the past few years, Farm Bureau volunteers have successfully used National Ag Day and Kentucky Ag Literacy Week as an opportunity to promote Kentucky agriculture by reading an "Accurate Ag Book" in classrooms throughout the state. This year we are again asking women to participate in this Ag Literacy effort.
