Women who want to learn farm management can do so in a class called Annie’s Project.
For the first time since 2006, the farm management class will be held in Fulton at the Callaway Extension Center. This is the second time Annie’s Project will be offered in Callaway, a class that originated in Illinois.
The class includes six sessions at 6 p.m. Wednesdays starting Jan. 18. The deadline for registration is noon Tuesday, Jan. 17, and the course costs $50. The extension office states that with software resources and materials that each participant receives, the value of the class is worth more than $300 per person. Classes are partially funded by a grant through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Risk Management Agency.
The extension office reports the goal of the class is to empower farm women to be better business partners through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. Mary Sobba, agriculture business specialist, is the main instructor and rotates presenting the class in Boone, Callaway, Osage, Cole and Audrain counties. Sobba said the class is taught all across the state.
