Annie’s Project is for farm partners

February 24, 2009
by Holle Smith

arm women and those involved in ag business have an unique opportunity to be involved in Annie's Project. The nationally recognized, six-part program is coming to Emmet County in March. In fact, we are one of six sites in the state to offer this program.

Those attending will gain a better understanding of issues critically needed to be an effective farm business partner. Participants will learn how to interpret financial information, marketing, agricultural terminology, insurance, legal issues and more.

Ron Hook, ISU Extension field specialist in farm management will teach the sessions along with local experts.

Annie's Project also features computer software that participants will obtain for their own use. Two of the six sessions will be computer based where participants will utilize software. With the volatility that we are seeing right now, I think being aware of business transactions may be more important than ever.

There is a fee to cover the six sessions which will be held March 9, March 12, March 16, March 19, March 26 and April 2.

For more information or to register, call or stop by our office at 26 S. 17th St., Estherville or call at 712-362-3434. Deadline to register is Feb. 27.

Class size is limited. Please call you have questions. I hope to see you at Annie's Project!
