Wisconsin woman shares farmer conference in San Diego

A Wisconsin sheep farmer attended the National Farmers Union Women's Conference in San Diego this past week.  Kriss Marion, who is from Blanchardville, vacations in Door County.  She is currently a LaFayette County supervisor who ran for the State Senate last year.  She says the conference was attended by about 80 women with six being from Wisconsin.  She says this was her fifth time in attending and it continues to be eye-opening with today's agricultural climate. 



Marion was the keynote speaker on a presentation encouraging more women farmers to run for office.  She will be acting as a policy delegate at the Wisconsin Farmers Union's 89th Annual Convention next weekend.
