Annie’s Project course for farm and ranch women set for Thursday in Carthage

Print

CARTHAGE, Ill. — Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. Through Annie’s Project courses, women in agriculture become empowered to be successful through education, networks, and resources. The next course in west-central Illinois begins Thursday in Carthage.

Annie’s Project, a six-week course, is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field. There’s plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. It’s a way to learn, grow and meet other women in agriculture.

Understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital. Learning them in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are welcomed, allows the learning process to flourish.

Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 15,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states. The cost for the course is $50 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. A light supper will be served. Course size is limited.
