Annie’s Project coming to Watertown

If you’re a woman involved in the agriculture industry, then Annie’s Project may be the program for you. SDSU Extension is hosting Annie’s Project in Watertown beginning Feb. 16, 2016.

Is Annie’s Project for you?

Have you ever asked a farm/ranch management question and not understood the answer? Have you ever signed papers at the bank or FSA and not really understood what they were for? Have you been thinking about if you have enough insurance or an estate plan? Have you wished you knew more about marketing your cattle or crops?

“If you answered “yes” to any one of these questions then you are a perfect candidate for Annie’s Project,” said Robin Salverson, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist.

Salverson explained that Annie’s Project was designed to empower women by providing detailed farm/ranch management information and build networks between women.

Over a six-week period, women will learn how to develop financial records, learn key communication skills, ask questions about retirement and estate planning, expand marketing knowledge – all while having fun in a supportive learning environment.

Classes meet once a week beginning Feb. 16, 2016 in Watertown at the Regional Extension Center (1910 West Kemp Ave). The classes continue Feb. 22, 29, March 7, 14, 21 with March 28 as a snow date.

Each session will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

The cost is $125 per person and meals will be served at each session.

Pre-registration is Feb. 5, 2016

Pre-registration is due by Feb. 5, 2016. Class space is limited. To register and for more information contact Karlys Wells, Annie’s Project Volunteer at 605-884-6694, or Robin Salverson at the SDSU Extension Regional Center in Lemmon, 605-374-4177.
