Kentucky Women in Agriculture Day proclaimed
Adair County has some of the best farmers in the state and most people are shocked when they find out just how many of those farmers are women. I grew up in a farm family and I'm proud to be raising my daughter and seeing my granddaughter raised as Kentucky Women of Agriculture.
By Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan
WHEREAS: There is a growing influence of women who serve as leaders and primary decision makers on Kentucky farms; and
WHEREAS: Kentucky has over 40,000 female farm operators that make up nearly one-fourth of all farm operations in the state; and
WHEREAS: Kentucky Women in Agriculture (KWIA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional development of its members; and
WHEREAS: KWIA strives to prepare females of any age for leadership roles in agriculture and agribusiness at the county, state, and national levels; and
WHEREAS: 234 Kentuckians are active members of the KWIA organization; and
WHEREAS Kentucky Women in Agriculture, Inc. is currently celebrating its 22nd annual conference in Lexington, KY.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Gale Cowan, Judge Executive of Adair County along with Andy Beshear, Governor of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, do hereby proclaim Tuesday, October 19th, 2021, as "Kentucky Women in Agriculture Day".
