JEFFERSON CITY — The University of Missouri Extension is offering a program aimed at helping women in agriculture.

The six-week program starts March 12 at Newton County Extension Center on the Crowder Campus in Neosho. The courses are part of Annie's Project, a program that started in Illinois in 2003 and has since spread to other states.

The program is named for an Illinois woman who ran a farm and raised six children in the 1950s.

Program topics include farm record keeping and taxes, business plans, how property is titled, pasture leases and how to use spreadsheets for farm records.

A grant through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Risk Management Agency helps fund the program. Pre-registration must be completed by March 6.
