Annie’s Project begins soon in Sidney
Sep 20 all-day

Farm and ranch women are generating a cultural tide in American agriculture that is moving management, assets, and opportunities to a new wave of farmers across the country. At Annie’s Project courses, farm women become empowered to be better business partners or sole operators through networks and by managing and organizing critical information.

Annie’s Project is a six-week course that is a discussion-based workshop bringing women together to learn from experts in production, financial management, human resources, marketing, and the legal field. There’s plenty of time for questions, sharing, reacting and connecting with presenters and fellow participants. It’s a relaxed, fun and dynamic way to learn, grow and meet other farm and ranch women.

Whether new or experienced, understanding the five areas of agricultural risk, knowing how to analyze agricultural spreadsheets and other necessary skills are vital.  Learning them in a friendly environment where questions and discussion are welcomed, allow the learning process to flourish.

Annie’s Project courses have successfully reached more than 9,000 farm and ranch women in 33 states.  The next course begins on Oct. 1, from 6-9 p.m. MDT at the South Platte Natural Resources District Office, 551 Parkland Drive, in Sidney.

The cost for the course is $75 per person, which includes a workbook and support materials for all sessions. A light supper will be served before each class at 6 p.m. Course size is limited, so please register soon.

For more information contact Karen DeBoer, Cheyenne County Extension Educator at (308) 254-4455 or kdeboer1@unl.edu. More information can be found on the Annie’s Project website at www.AnniesProject.org.

Larson Dairy Open House
Sep 22 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Larson Dairy of Creston invites you to see a relatively new piece of technology in dairy production, milking robots as they are called. These are stand alone units where the individual cow chooses when to be milked, and she will walk herself to the robot, and the robot accomplishes the task of collecting the milk. There are only three herds in Nebraska that have installed the robot milkers. The open house will be on Sunday September 22 from 12-noon until 5pm at the Larson Dariy farm, 1 1/2 miles north of Creston on Meridian Road. There will be snacks and goodies, and informational displays. Hope to see you there!

Farm Finance & Ag Law Clinic
Sep 25 all-day

Free legal and financial clinics are being offered for farmers and ranchers at five sessions across the state in September. The clinics are one-on-one meetings with an agricultural law attorney and an agricultural financial counselor. These are not group sessions, and they are confidential.

The attorney and financial advisor specialize in legal and financial issues related to farming and ranching, including financial and business planning, transition planning, farm loan programs, debtor/creditor law, debt structure and cash flow, agricultural disaster programs, and other relevant matters. Here is an opportunity to obtain an independent, outside perspective on issues that may be affecting your farm or ranch.

Clinic Sites and Dates
    Grand Island — Thursday, September 5
    North Platte — Thursday, September 12
    Lexington — Thursday, September 19
    Norfolk — Wednesday, September 25
    Valentine — Thursday, September 26

To sign up for a free clinic or to get more information, call the Nebraska Farm Hotline at 1-800-464-0258.  Funding for this work is provided by the Nebraska Department of Agriculture, Legal Aid of Nebraska, North Central Extension Risk Management Education Center, and the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
