Dave Hoekstra talks with Iowa State student and intern Josie Burgett about Farm Her, an organization with the mission of changing the image of agriculture, by showcasing women’s contributions at the forefront of the industry.  She talks about Farm Her’s GROW sessions that provide education and networking to get young girls interested in farming, her own family’s background in the swine industry, the value of a great mentor in learning the trade, how farming works best as a “family affair” and more.
