BOLIVAR — The University of Missouri Extension is offering a farm management course geared to women.

The series of six classes begins March 3 at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center in southwest Missouri.

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.

Topics to be covered include farm record-keeping and taxes, business plans, pasture rental contracts, titling property and estate planning.

MU Extension specialists and guest speakers will teach the course, which is limited to the first 25 women who register.
