Overview

Annie’s Project is a multi-day series that focuses on women involved in agriculture. Participants learn about the evolving agriculture business and share life experiences with other women living and working in the same complex and dynamic environment. Speakers from the agriculture industry will present on a variety of topics, including: production, marketing, financial, legal, human resources, risk management, USDA Programs, insurance coverage, and family communications.

The objectives of the program are:

  • Deliver technical training to farm and ranch women, enhancing their business skills.
  • Develop a support network, which is essential for continuing education and self-help.
  • Create a comfortable and supportive learning environment.
