By , Farms.com

The Government of Saskatchewan proclaims that March is to be celebrated as Rural Women’s month. The acknowledgement of rural women’s contributions to the province will be observed with various other celebrations, including the United Nation’s International Women’s Day. 

“The contributions of Saskatchewan’s rural women have played a vital role in placing our province as a global leader in agriculture,” Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart said in a press release.  “I am pleased to see more women getting involved and taking leadership roles within the agriculture industry.  Women will be key contributors to our industry’s continued success as we prepare to meet the growing global demand for food.”

Rural Women’s Month is an opportunity to recognize the contributions that women have made to agriculture and their farm communities. In Saskatchewan, almost one quarter of farm operators are women.
