Annie's Project meetings geared for farm women

Dec. 9, 2013 | 0 comments


For farm women, Thursdays in January are reserved for a series of four Annie's Project meetings to be held at the J.P. Coughlin Center, 625 E. County Y, at the north edge of Oshkosh. The four sessions will be held from 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. on January 9, 16, 23, and 30.

Annie's Project, started by a farm woman from northern Illinois, is an education program for farm women that is based on real experiences of living and working in a complex business. It is designed to help the women to become better business partners by networking with one another and by managing and organizing critical information.

On Jan. 9, the session topics and presenters will be "Discover the Color of Your Personality" by Winnebago County youth development educator Rene Mehlberg, how the Affordable Care Act affects farm families by Winnebago County family living educator Kristi Cutts, and making the best use of the Farm Service Agency by the Outagamie County FSA director Vicki Wiese.

A week later, University of Wisconsin Center for Dairy Profitability Outreach program coordinator Jenny Vanderlin will review the basics of financial record keeping and describe the building blocks for farm financial statements. Interpreting such statements will be discussed by retired University of Wisconsin-River Falls agricultural economist Nate Splett.

On Jan. 23, University of Wisconsin Extension Service dairy specialist Amy Stanton will share tips on calf care to reduce respiratory health and improve animal husbandry, UW dairy reproductive management specialist Connie Cordoba will outline how to improve herd reproductive performance, and Outagamie County dairy educator Liz Binversie will review the findings on a recent survey on the cost of raising dairy heifers.

At the final meeting on Jan. 30, Outagamie County crops, soils, and horticulture agent Kevin Jarek will lead a "Marketing 101" session, Natural Resource Conservation Service technician Melanie Boone will describe how to start a livestock grazing operation, and Winnebago County agriculture agent Nick Schneider will lead discussions on "Shifting Gears for the Golden Years" and on "Communication Across Generations."

The fee, including a lunch each day, is $30 per person per session. Checks payable to Winnebago County UW - Extension and a note indicating the planned days of attendance should be sent to Winnebago County UWEX, 625 E. County Road Y, Oshkosh, WI 54901 by Jan. 3.

Questions should be directed to Schneider by phone to 920-232-1971 or by e-mail to nick.schneider@ces.uwex.edu.
