Approximately 75 participants attended educational sessions and learned about a variety of topics including legislative issues in agriculture, teaching ag to kids, farm loans, and ag tourism. Local chef Virgil Gibson catered the luncheon and cooked rib eye steaks donated by the Firestone Meat Lab.

Matt Rush, a New Mexico farmer and rancher, was the keynote speaker. His passion is reminding people that American agriculture is the best in the world and everyone in the industry should act as ambassadors.

Carolyn McCargish-Camfield, OPSU's Women in Ag student advisor, said, "The conference was a great success and we appreciate everyone who attended and the companies that provided awesome door prizes!"
