Women play a significant role in agriculture and in Farm Bureau. The most recent Census of Agriculture found that the number of women serving as principal operators of farms and ranches in the United States had increased over the past 20 years. In 2007, 13.9 percent of farms and ranches had female principal operators. As women take a more active role in production, they are also becoming more involved in organizations that represent farmers and ranchers.
In Nevada, Farm Bureau women play an active role in agricultural promotion and education. Events such as Food Check-Out Week, County Fairs provide great opportunities to educate the public about Farm Bureau and Nevada agriculture.
