Annie’s Project begins Jan. 22

BROOKINGS, S.D. – If you’re a woman involved in the agriculture industry, then Annie’s Project may be the program for you. The program will be held in Florence starting January 22, 2019.

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.

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

Over a six-week period, participants 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 January 22, 2019 in Florence at the community center (308 Main Ave).

The classes continue January 29 and February 5, 12, 19 and 26. Each session will run from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m.

Register by January 18, 2019

To help cover costs, the registration fee for Annie’s Project 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. Go to our Events page to register for the Florence Annie’s Project.
