The University of Wisconsin-Extension offices in Rusk and Taylor Counties are hosting a two day Annie's Project on Farm Financial Management. The workshop will be held on February 25 and March 4 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Jump River Community Center in Jump River.
This series is for farm women who are interested in learning or improving their farm financial management, which is part of the fabric of farm life. The series will be inter-active between speakers and participants with in-class exercises.
Topics include introduction to financial management; records and recordkeeping systems; filing important family papers; management reports; benchmarking of financial position and performance; and decision making tools.
The cost of the program is $40 which includes materials and lunch both days. Brochures and registration information are available by contacting UW-Extension Taylor County office at 715-748-3327.
Annie's project is an opportunity for farm women to learn about farm management skills by providing resources and information to improve farming operations. Class sizes are small which allows for opportunities to network with other farm women in similar situations.
