The Gordon Livestock Market will host a Nebraska Women in Agriculture event on Saturday, June 22. The program, hosted in partnership with Nebraska Extension’s Women in Agriculture, will be held at Gordon Livestock Market in Gordon, Neb.

The event kicks off with check-in at 8 a.m., followed by breakfast from 9 – 10 a.m. Lunch and dinner are provided and vendors will be on hand and available throughout the event.

Speakers include Kurt Sexton of Farm Credit and Jenn Stomprud of Stomprud Ranch.

The evening will be capped with dinner, followed by a Floral Arranging Class paired with cocktails & social networking.
