University of Idaho Extension will offer Southern Idaho Annie’s Project, a six-week, online course, to help Southern Idaho farm and ranch women to become better business owners and partners beginning Feb. 9.
The course will consist of six, three-hour Zoom sessions to help farm and ranch women by connecting through networks and by managing and organizing critical information. The schedule also will include at least one in-person networking event or farm walk. Registration is $60 and will close on Feb. 8.
The online sessions will run from 6-9 p.m. MST on consecutive Tuesdays until March 16. The all-woman course focuses on problem solving and decision-making skills to address production, legal, market, human and financial risks in agriculture.
Topics include record keeping, business planning, marketing, farm succession planning, retirement planning, insurance programs, and best places to find resources.
