Women in Ranching to host weekly community check-in calls

In response to recommendations to limit in-person interactions from the CDC and pandemic experts, our Women in Ranching program director Amber Smith will be hosting weekly video conference calls on Zoom, every Wednesday at 12pm (noon) MST, for connection, comfort, and community. Amber says, “Women, children, spouses, friends, whoever you are in the house with, are all welcome to participate. I want this to be fun, uplifting and a way to connect even for just a moment with friendly faces.” Call-in information can be found on our events calendar.

In addition, the Women in Ranching will be compiling a list of direct-to-consumer beef businesses within our network that are able to ship high-quality, delicious protein around the country at a time when trips to the grocery store are advised against. Keep an eye on our Facebook pages (Women in Ranching and Western Landowners) for updates.
