Local Women Complete Annie’s Project Course in Dyersville

Delaware and Dubuque County Iowa State University Extension and Outreach offices offered Annie’s Project to educate farm women on various risk management topics. Annie’s Project is a six week course designed to empower farmwomen to manage information systems used in critical decision making processes and to build local networks.  The target audience is farmwomen with a passion for business and involvement.
Twenty-four women from Clayton, Delaware, Dubuque, and Jones counties completed Annie’s Project in Dyersville. The women met for six weeks in February and March at the James Kennedy Public Library. During these sessions, local agribusiness professionals covered 16 risk management topics including estate planning, farm succession planning, grain marketing, crop insurance and financial statements and analysis. Throughout the course women gained knowledge on topics presented relative to their operation and enjoyed the networking opportunities. The Annie’s Project class in Dyersville was funded by a grant from the USDA/FCIC Risk Management Agency and supported by Delaware and Dubuque County ISU Extension and Outreach and Farm Credit Services of America.
