Abstract

I want to thank Byron Leu for asking me to speak today and I think Denise had something to do with this too. So thank you both. Byron called me back in October. I think all of you can remember, or maybe you don’t want to remember, what the weather was like then. It was raining and at home we were all trying to think of jobs to accomplish until the monsoon let up. Everyone was anxious to get the corn out of the field and let our cows have some good grazing on the stalks. Byron asked if I could come and talk about women in agriculture. I wasn’t quite sure what he exactly wanted me to talk about, because women in agriculture is a pretty broad topic. As far as I am concerned, it is the second oldest profession, and I think you all know what the first is.
