Annie’s Project in Pierre beginning Jan. 14

If you’re a woman involved in the agriculture industry, then Annie’s Project may be the program 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 Adele Harty, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist

Annie’s Project was designed to empower women by providing detailed farm/ranch management information and build networks between women. Annie’s Project is designed as a six-week workshop. During those six-weeks women will learn how to develop financial records, learn key communication skills, ask questions about retirement and estate planning, expand marketing knowledge – all in a fun and supportive learning environment.

Classes meet once a week beginning January 14, 2015 in Pierre at the SDSU Extension Regional Center. The classes continue on Jan. 21, 28 and Feb. 4, 11 and 18. Each session will run from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. CST.

The cost is $150 per person and meals will be served at each session. Registration cost will be reduced based on the amount of local sponsorship received.

Registration Deadline is Jan. 7, 2015

For more information contact Harty at the SDSU Extension Regional Center in Rapid City, 605-394-1722 or Pre-registration is due by Jan. 7, 2015. Class space is limited.
