?The “Kansas Annie’s Project” developed as a result of the “Women in Ag” conferences held in
Kansas over the past several years. Attendees expressed the desire for more in depth training on
specific farm-related issues. The Annie’s Project format was the avenue deemed best for this
type of approach. Three counties from south central Kansas submitted a grant to the North
Central Risk Management Education Center to accomplish this task. Topics of discussion, most
requested, have been determining costs of production, understanding financial statements, family and employee relationships, farm transitional planning, marketing, farm programs and computerized record keeping.
This session will highlight how it was started and supported within Kansas and the project’s ongoing outcomes. It will also highlight several of the hands on activities used to help reinforce the education provided.
