Women's group promotes agriculture
Karen Yost likes to say that she's part of "the nation's best-kept secret."
"Even though we've been around since 1974, people hear our name and say, 'What's that?' But when they understand what we are, they're usually anxious to get involved," she says.
Yost is national president of American Agri-Women, a coalition of 50 state and commodity affiliate organizations, as well as individual women, across the country. Her group represents about 50,000 women.
