Scottsbluff group completes Annie’s Project

Ten farm and ranch women from western Nebraska successfully completed the six-week Annie’s Project course offered this fall 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 mid-October; the next Annie’s Project group will begin in February.

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 fall class, including Erika Cochran of Kimball, Linda Claflin of Scottsbluff, Daria Anderson Faden of Kimball, Kim Fenning of Bayard, Julia Henkel of Bayard, Danette Hudson of Hemingford, Lisa Kaufman of Morrill, LaNelle Martin of Kimball, Kristy Pitts of Lyman, and Alberta Thomas of Mitchell.

The next Annie’s Project in Scottsbluff will begin Feb 16. 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 Spring Session is due by Feb. 8. 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.
