Annie’s Project offers management education for farm, ranch women

Women: Have you ever asked your husband a 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. Annie’s Project was designed to empower women by providing detailed 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 for Level 1 Annie’s Project meet once a week beginning Oct. 5 in Spearfish, SD, at the Lawrence County Extension Office. The classes continue Oct. 12, 19, 26 and Nov. 2, 9.
