5 Ways Women in Agriculture are Using Social Media

I am a woman, I love agriculture and I love social media.  So, I thought I would highlight some of the top ways women in agriculture use social media to promote ag advocacy and their passions in life.  I am not new to social media.  I remember when Facebook finally came to Missouri State University my sophomore year of college.  But until recently my use of social media was purely for connecting with friends and family.  These women have influenced me to become an advocate of agriculture using social media.  I hope you can learn from them as well.

4.  Wisconsin Women in Agriculture

  • For 30 years Wisconsin Women in Agriculture have worked hard to advocate for agriculture by telling their story, but they wanted to take it one step further and learn how to use today’s technology…social media.
  • Lisa Condon hosted a social media training day at her farm.  They brought in Danielle Hammer and Nancy Kavazanjian.  These women understand agriculture and social media.
  • Using the technology of webinars the women were able to learn how to use social media to tell their story.
  • Check them out on Facebook, Rock River Chapter of Wisconsin Women In Agriculture.

These are just a few of the many women across the country who are excited about sharing what agriculture means to them through the great technology of social media.  How are you sharing your story?
