Annie’s Project Course Benefits Women in Agricultural Industry

Wed, 16 Oct 2019 16:51:58 CDT

Annie’s Project Course Benefits Women in Agricultural Industry Agriculture is a big part of Oklahoma’s culture, and women continue to have a major role in its success. 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 courses, farm/ranch women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. The next series of classes will take place in Dewey, Oklahoma, beginning Nov. 5 and will meet weekly through Dec. 10, 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., said Katie Hughes, Washington County Oklahoma State University Cooperative Extension agriculture/4-H youth development educator.   


“Annie Project is a 6-week course that is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing and the legal field,” Hughes said. “Whether new or experienced in the industry, 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.”   


Registration, due Oct. 21, is $60 and includes a workbook and support materials for all six classes. Dinner will be served before each class. Those interested in participating should contact Hughes at 918-534-2216 or via email at kaitlyn.n.hughes@okstate.edu. Classes will take place at the Washington County OSU Extension Office, 205 E. 12th St.   


“There will be plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. It’s a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm/ranch women,” she said. “We’ll have industry specialists in to talk about financial risk, human resource risk, legal risk, market risk and production risk, all of which have a major impact on agriculture.” More information can be found on the Annie’s Project website at www.AnniesProject.org.
