IDEAS & ADVICE

WOMEN LANDOWNER THOUGHTS
ABOUT CONSERVATION, SOIL HEALTH

When a group of South Dakota women landowners—some of whom live on the farm, some who live out of state—gathered to learn more about soil health and how to best care for the land they own, we asked them a few questions about how they view the importance of conservation and soil health, and whether they face any special challenges as a woman landowner. Hover over the images to view the highlights of what they had to say.
