Scottsbluff group completes Annie’s Project course

Sixteen farm and ranch women successfully completed the Annie’s Project course offered Nov. 4-5 in Scottsbluff, in the process becoming better business partners by sharpening their networking skills and ability to manage and organize critical information.

Annie’s Project is two-day retreat, made up of five 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 Fall class, including: Laura Baker, Harrisburg; Brittany Parker, Gering; Heather Kreman, Bayard; Paige Steinle, Bayard; Lisa Betz-Marquez, Gering; Sheena Semroska, Harrison; Linda Claflin, Scottsbluff; Joan Schneider, Morrill; Kristin Schneider, Henry; Toni Blomenkamp, Broadwater; Lyndi Ashe, Lyman; Dawn Norby, Lyman; Corrina Robbins, Alliance; Kristen Kesterson, Bridgeport; Kim Vondy, Fruita, Colorado; Alicia Kunz, Buffalo Gap, South Dakota.

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.
