Annie’s Project to be held in McIntosh beginning Oct. 16

SDSU Extension

BROOKINGS — If you’re a woman involved in the agriculture industry, then Annie’s Project may be the program for you.

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 then you are a perfect candidate for Annie’s Project.

Hosted by SDSU Extension, Annie’s Project is designed to empower women by providing detailed farm/ranch management information and build networks between women.

Over a six-week period women will learn how to develop financial records, learn key communication skills, ask questions about retirement and estate planning, expand marketing knowledge – all while having fun in a supportive learning environment.

Registration deadline is Oct. 10, 2017.

Classes meet once a week beginning October 16, 2017 at the McIntosh City Hall. The classes continue October 23, 30, November 6, 13, and 20. Each session will run from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m.

The cost is $130 per person and meals will be served at each session.
