Lake Erie Women in Agriculture meeting Tuesday in Portland
Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County and the Lake Erie Region Grape Program will hold a meeting for the Lake Erie Women in Agriculture group Tuesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
The meeting, focusing on employee management, will be held at the CLEREL facility, located at 6592 West Main Road, Portland. Thomas Maloney, M.P.S., Cornell University, will present the "Ten Things Your Employees Expect from you." Employee management was identified as one of the top 10 topics women in agriculture in the Lake Erie Region would like to learn more about in a recent CCE survey (2011). According to a 2012 CCE survey of more than 25 farms, 56 percent of respondents said it was somewhat difficult to extremely difficult to find and maintain a quality workforce. Employ-ee management continues to be a challenge for small family farms.

The goal of the Lake Erie Women in Agriculture group is to help farm women make connections with, and learn from, other women in agriculture, and to provide information about practices that im-prove their farms' production and financial viability.
Cornell Cooperative Ext-ension is an equal program opportunity provider, committed to providing Chau-tauqua County residents low-cost, high-quality, and research-based programs in agriculture, the environment, youth development and human services.
