Compared to #male producers, women in ag are slightly younger, are more likely to live on the #farm they operate, and are more likely to be a beginning producer. In fact, 41% of beginning producers are women. #Data points like these from the #agcensus allow #farmers and #ranchers to tell the story of American #agriculture. The data inform decision makers who shape farm policies and programs, community planners and agribusinesses that target needed services to producers, and more. Data from the 2022 Census of Agriculture, which will be released in early 2024, will give us an updated picture of women in the industry.
