Everything we do is for the advancement of women in agriculture, and it is all thanks to the amazing group who volunteer their time and effort to plan initiatives and events across the province! We asked each of our team members why they were proud to be a Woman in Ag, so take some time and get to know a little more about each one of us!
Area Business Manager, ADAMA
During my time in the industry I've been fortunate enough to learn from and be mentored by women that have influenced and shaped the world of agriculture for years.
The work I do within our Women in Ag group is my way of giving back, saying "thank you" to those who have inspired me, and encourage the next wave of industry leaders to step up and say "I can do that job, contribute to that board decision, or run that piece of equipment."
Farmer and AgTech Consultant
I'm proud to be a woman in Ag so I can be a part of shaking up this amazing industry - to make it even better! Women are the backbone of agriculture in many different roles - from the field to the office - we touch every part of the industry. I can't wait to see where we can take it next!
Crop Inputs Manager and Farmer
I have met so many amazing women involved in different levels of agriculture across Saskatchewan, and I am proud to be part of a group who can help connect these women, and continue to strengthen our wonderful industry.
"Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion"
I live in Carrot River, Sk with my husband where I work as a sales agronomist for Pasquia Agro Services and also help on my husbands family farm. I am proud to be involved in Women in Ag because there are so many great role models involved in the group as well that share the same interests I do and can help guide me along my own agricultural path. This group brings women together and empowers them to become more passionate and vocal about women in agriculture.
Agriculture Awareness Specialist and Farmer
I am proud to be a part of the Agriculture industry because I believe that this industry is built on passion, devotion, and hard work. In my time spent working in Agriculture, I have observed that when women gather together and support each other, we serve as leaders and role models for young girls and enable them to believe that they can be anything they want to be, aside from age, gender, or background.
Event Planner, Brookline Events
Having grown up on a grain farm, I understood the importance of hard work, integrity & accountability. I am proud to provide support behind the scenes to this amazing group of ladies & am inspired by them all on a daily basis. I look forward to being part of the future of this organization & am excited to see where it takes us as we grow with the industry.
I grew up on a small livestock farm, where we operate a meat-shop as a value-added business. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Agribusiness. Women in Ag is a group of passionate, creative, and intelligent women that inspire me daily. Our mission to "support, connect, and empower" is truly carried out every single day. I'm excited for what the future of agriculture has to hold, and how I can be a part of it. People say that the future belongs to those still willing to get their hands dirty, and I can't wait to get some dirt under my fingernails.
Farm and Business Advisor, Cornerstone Credit Union
I am so proud and honoured to work in the agriculture industry. I have spent my professional life in Saskatchewan and am always amazed at how progressive, challenging and welcoming this industry is. Working with farmers and others in this industry is something I consider myself lucky to do and I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. The group of women in this organization are people I have tremendous respect for and admire each of them for the impact they have on agriculture. I look forward to working with them and learning from them!
Agronomist, Field Good Agronomics
I always knew I wanted my future to involve agriculture. I grew up on a mixed farm outside of Pilger, SK and kept busy training and showing horses. I have been involved with multiple organizations in the past and I am very excited to join the Women in Ag. The group has a network of great women and I look forward to hearing and learning from them all. I am proud to say I am a woman in ag and hopefully I can add to the growth and success of the group!
