CWFS Women and Youth in Agriculture Conference

Pathways To Change

The CWFS Women and Youth in Agriculture ‘Pathways to Change’ Conference was held on Friday, 21 October 2016 at the Condobolin Ag Station and proved a fabulous day for networking, catching up with friends, and gaining valuable information. With stunning weather and an array of high calibre speakers, the Conference attracted over 85 women, sponsors, community members, and agri-advisors.
