Well educated young women who could do anything are choosing to farm, and to lead. Equal gender opportunities do abound in agriculture, including the opportunity to give leadership to controversial issues like climate change. Krysten Mensonides and Lynne Wheeler both graduated from universities and had career choices before they decided farming was their future. Now that future includes joining with their fellow dairy farmers in Washington state to achieve carbon neutrality (or better) on their farms by 2050. The dairy industry currently accounts for 2% of total Green House Gas emissions in the US. They share their journey back to the farm and on to the front lines of farmers addressing climate change. #mensonidesdairy #coldstreamfarm www.wadairy.org
