Farm and Ranch Women are Decision Makers

The decisions made today have a long‐range impact on all businesses.

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.

Why Annie's Project?

This 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 your presenters and fellow participants.

It’s a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other Farm and Ranch women.

Annie's Alumnae Speak Out

“I took the class to gain a better under- standing 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.” – Linda

“I grew up on the family farm for 21 years, but today’s way of farming is much different. As my father would say, ‘It’s a sophisticated business.’ I needed to learn more so I could be an effective member of a team in the areas of marketing and financ- es. I have learned about the future of farming and have been given a variety of tools that will help my father currently and my husband farm in the future.” – Carrie
