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. At Annie’s Project workshops, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

The upcoming Annie’s Project in southeast Nebraska is a three week course (2 sessions per week) that is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field. There will be plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. We’ll work to make it a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm and ranch women.

Annie’s Project sessions are planned for January 28, 30, February 4, 6, 11, and 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Farm Credit Services of America Conference Room, north Highway 77 in Beatrice. The cost for the full six session course is $75 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. An evening meal will be served at each class. Course size is limited, so please register by calling the Gage County Extension office at 402.223-1384.

Whether new or experienced, 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, allow the learning process to flourish.Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states.

Linda, an Annie’s Project alumna says, “I took the class to gain a better understanding about agribusiness and how financial decisions impact our farm operation. I have a better understanding of balance sheets and the futures market…this class has improved communication with my spouse on concerns he works with on a daily basis.”
