Women in Meat Northeast Conference - 2017

The Women in Meat Northeast Conference is an event designed for women whose livelihood intersects with the world of livestock such as butchers, farmers, processors, chefs, value-added producers, distributers, and service providers across all segments of the industry. Our goal is to provide women with the opportunities to learn from and network with one another, while developing valuable skills and growing and strengthening their respective businesses and brands. 

Whether you are raising livestock or creating and selling products with it, we've got you covered.
