WSU conference brings women in ag together
Margaret Viebrock. The stress
in farming has always exist-
ed, but the levels soar during
times of high costs and low
returns.
The interactive and engag-
ing conference will motivate
women in agriculture to
develop a self-care plan
and realize the connection
between a healthy person and
a healthy farm. The format of
this conference “enables us to
offer our headline speakers at
all locations, while still tailor-
ing the conference content for
each region,” Viebrock added.
“Last year, nearly 500
women attended,” said
Viebrock. “Many attendees
reported it is the best confer-
ence for women producers
because it presents practical
information they can use
right away.”
The lineup for the day
includes Brenda Mack, a
third-generation farmer in
Minnesota who is also a be-
havior and wellness professor
with Bemidji State University,
and Shauna Reitmeier, also
a third-generation farmer,
who specializes in behavioral
health with the Northwest
Mental Health Center in
Minnesota. Together they
will help women farmers
strengthen their personal
health care to reduce the
effects of stress, worry and
exhaustion.
Sue Schneider, Colorado
State University Extension,
will teach women how to
make mindful farming and
personal decisions without
reacting to negative thoughts,
emotions and judgements.
Each location will have
a local panel of women
farmers who will explain how
they have developed their
own self-care plan to deal
with day-to-day events and
make mindful decisions that
helped them be successful in
farming.
Gabrielle McNally, who
represents the Women for the
Land: American Farmland
Trust’s Initiative, will explain
the program, which engages
women farmers on topics
of conservation, farmland
preservation and land
access. A partnership with
this Initiative can implement

This year’s event, “Healthy
Farms,” covers the topic of
cultivating personal resilien-
cy to handle all the “ups and
downs” as a women farmer. It
is no secret that things can be
tough for farmers, with both
problems that can be con-
trolled and issues farmers try
to control when they can’t,

Representative Greg Walden (R-Hood River) released a
statement Jan. 23 applauding the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) for providing a new definition of “Waters of
the United States” (WOTUS).
Since the Obama Administration’s 2015 WOTUS ruling,
Walden said he has heard concerns from rural Oregonians
that the rule was burdensome and would harm their work.
The Obama-era ruling significantly expanded the EPA’s
jurisdiction over land use decisions. The previous WOTUS
definition enabled the EPA to potentially regulate bodies
of water like drain ditches on farmland, which resulted in
farmers and ranchers facing uncertainty as to who might
face litigation or onerous permit requirements.
“For years, farmers and ranchers across Oregon have
expressed their concerns to me about the heavy-handed
Obama-era definition of WOTUS,” said Walden. “They
stressed that their intermittent stream or irrigation ditch
would be subject to the burden of overreaching federal
regulation. The EPA’s new definition of WOTUS will protect
both our environment and our rural communities. Today’s
announcement is welcome news for rural Oregon. I applaud
President Trump and his administration for listening to the
concerns of America’s farmers and ranchers and delivering
on the promise to revise WOTUS.”
Walden was one of the first critics of the 2015 Obama-era
ruling and has since pressed Congress to revise it. When the
Trump Administration first announced their decision to
revise WOTUS, Walden shared his strong approval.
