South Dakota: Annie’s Project geared towards women in agriculture

Today’s agriculture is fast-paced, technology-driven and acronym-using. Women hold more roles than ever, but still want to be productive business partners in their ranch or agricultural business. If you are a woman that feels the need to learn more and network with other women you should attend Annie’s Project in Spearfish, SD.

Annie’s Project is based on the experiences of a farm wife who spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Together they did great things, but it wasn’t easy. Annie’s Project takes life experiences and shares it with ranch women living and working in a complex dynamic, evolving business environment.

During Annie’s Project, women will receive training in the areas of marketing, financials, production and estate planning. It will be offered in six Monday evening sessions beginning, Jan. 3. The program is sponsored South Dakota Extension Service and Farm Service Agency. Cost is $50 per person and class size is limited. Participants should contact the Lawrence County Extension Office at 605-642-6200 to register by Dec. 30.

For questions, contact Robin at 605-375-3412. The scheduled dates for Annie’s Project are Jan. 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 and Feb. 7. The first session will be held at the Lawrence County Extension Office in Spearfish. F
