Wanted in McIntosh: Women who are involved in agriculture
BROOKINGS, S.D. – SDSU Extension will host Annie’s Project in McIntosh beginning January 11, 2017.
Class registration is due by January 6”If you’re a woman involved in the agriculture industry, then Annie’s Project may be the program for you,” said Robin Salverson, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist.
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, Salverson said you are a perfect candidate for Annie’s Project. “Annie’s Project was designed to empower women by providing detailed farm/ranch management information and build networks between women,” Salverson said.
