Annie’s Project: Iowa women share their stories

Sara Shepherd

Sara Shepherd is taking over her family’s farm. Julie Van Waardhuizen is fully engaged in farming with her husband. Mother and daughter Rexanne Struve and Brandi Wiig are beginning to look at transitioning the farm from one generation to the next. Although their farming situations vary, these Iowa women all credit Annie’s Project with improving their ability to make sound risk management decisions.

For 10 years ISU Extension and Outreach has been providing this educational program to empower Iowa farm women to be better business partners. Watch the videos to learn more.
