Farm/Ranch Women “Home Alone” Workshop

The following is from Tyler Lane, Chouteau County Extension Agent:   

            Have you ever been left home alone to manage the farm and ranch for a few days or hours? Have you been left to “watch” the cows during calving?  How about being left at home during fire season to watch the place although all the equipment for firefighting went to the local fire?   Do you know where the breaker boxes are, how to start the generator and where the propane/fuel shut off valves are if things should go wrong?  Could you handle issues with your water system?  Ever have a skunk in the window well or other varmints around the home and not have a clue as to how to get rid of them? 

            These and other issues farm/ranch women face will be the topic of a daylong, hands on workshop sponsored by the MSU Extension Chouteau County
