Seven farm and ranch women from western Nebraska successfully completed the six-week Annie's Project course offered this spring in Scottsbluff, in the process becoming better business partners by sharpening their networking skills and ability to manage and organize critical information.

The spring session ended in early May; the next Annie's Project group will begin in the fall.

Annie's Project is made up of six three-hour evening sessions. Each session is based on one of the five areas of risk management: production, market, financial, legal, and human risk. Sessions are split equally between instruction and discussion or interactive learning.

Jessica Groskopf, Nebraska Extension Educator at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center, said she wants to congratulate the participants of the Scottsbluff Spring class, including Katherine Batt of Gering, Linda Barrett of Kimball, April Delsig of Hemingford, Bernice Huffman of Potter, Marilyn Holmes of Minatare, Jean Lashley of Mitchell, and Sandy Preston of Minatare.

The next Annie's Project in Scottsbluff will begin in September. The cost is $75 per person. Participants will receive handouts, an Annie's Project portfolio, and a light dinner at each meeting.

Course size is limited. Pre-registration for the Fall Session is due by Aug. 31. Scholarships and distance learning opportunities are available. Annie's Project is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency and sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America.
