posted January 6, 2016

The Cornell Cooperative Extension associations of northern New York are looking for mothers and daughters, daughter-in-laws, and female farm managers and owners interested in ways to better manage agricultural businesses today, successfully retire, and pass a profitable farm business on to a child or the next owner.

The 4-week, 15-hour Managing for Today and Tomorrow training course to be offered at different sites in northern NY is part of the nationwide Annie’s Project, an educational program dedicated to strengthening the role of women in the modern farm enterprise.

The Jefferson-Lewis County edition of the 4-week course will be held at the Farm Credit East office, 25417 NY Route 12, Burrville, from 10am to 2pm on January 27 and February 10, 17 and 24.

The Clinton-Essex County edition of the 4-week course will be held at the Cornell Cooperative Extension office, 3 Sisco Street, Westport, from 10am to 2pm on January 27 and February 11, 18 and 25.
