      AgStar Announces 2017 Annie’s Project Schedule
      Women invited to expand farming expertise through six-week program

      AgStar Financial Services, ACA, is again hosting Annie’s Project, a nationally-known workshop series dedicated to strengthening women’s role in the modern farm enterprise. Sessions will be offered in seven locations in AgStar’s Minnesota service area over the coming months. The first session starts in St. James on January 10.

      Annie’s Project connects women who are passionate for agriculture and helps them develop a strong and well-rounded understanding of their farm and the agriculture industry. The program curriculum examines five areas of risk, including production, financial, marketing, legal and human resources. The program is offered as part of the AgStar Edge, a resource for enhancing industry knowledge through online resources and in-person educational events.

      “AgStar offers Annie’s Project as an opportunity for women to learn about the common areas of risk in farming and prepare them to make business decisions,” said Amy Durand, AgStar Edge Project Manager.

      Launched in 2003, Annie’s Project has successfully reached more than 8,000 farmers and ranchers in 30 states. AgStar began offering the program in 2014.

      The 2017 Annie’s Project schedule is as follows:
      St. James – Tuesdays, from January 10 to February 14
      Rochester ­– Thursdays, from January 12 to February 16
      Worthington – Thursdays, from January 26 to March 2

      St. Cloud – Thursdays, from March 2 to April 6
      New Ulm – Tuesdays, from March 7 to April 11
