Annie’ Project for Women in Agriculture planned

| January 3, 2013

COSHOCTON – Coshocton County OSU Extension will offer Annie’s Project on Tuesday evenings Jan. 29 through March 5. The mission of Annie’s Project is “to empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.”

Annie’s Project is named after the mother of a University of Illinois Extension agent. Annie spent her lifetime learning how to be an involved business partner with her farm husband. Annie’s life experiences have inspired this program for farm women living and working in a complex, dynamic, evolving business environment.

Farm women will receive training in five areas of risk management: Financial, marketing, production, legal/institutional and human resources.

The program will be offered in six sessions beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 29 and continuing through Tuesday, March 5. There will be a meal starting at 5:30 p.m. for each session, and the program will run from 6 to 9 p.m. 

The individual participant cost is $60 per person thanks to generous contributions of local sponsors, including Farm Credit Services, PNC Bank, Coshocton Grain Company and Coshocton County Farm Bureau.

The class size is limited to 20 participants. Registration deadline is Friday, Jan. 11. Visit for a registration form. If you have questions about enrollment, contact Emily Adams at the Coshocton County Extension Office at 740-622-2265.
