In both subtle and obvious ways, the changing roles of farm and ranch women are influencing American agriculture and global food security. To tell the story of farm and ranch women’s changing roles, the new Women in Ag Learning Network is hosting a series of three webinars beginning on Nov. 18.
A special value added agriculture Annie’s Project course is coming to Ames in March. The course covers five areas of agricultural risk: financial, human resources, legal, marketing and production.
Annie's Project helped Nicole Jonas write a business plan and add value to her farm business. The classes "made me realize things I needed to be doing or be doing better on Red Granite Farm and helped me focus on it as a real business,” Jonas said.
