American Agri-Women gets grant to produce TV program

American Agri-Women has received a grant from USDA to produce a television program for farm and ranch women, which is planned to air nationwide in 2009.

Six months of programming is about completed, which will include 30-minute weekly programs to be shown four times each week. The programs are planned to air on satellite and cable networks, which reach an audience of over 30 million nationwide.

Each weekly program will include information for women producers on a relevant topic to assist them in managing risk, such as estate planning or farm tax planning. Program topics will also include items such as educating consumers. In addition, each program will include a segment on the farm with an AAW member, addressing the theme for that week.

The grant is provided through the Risk Management Agency's Community Outreach and Partnership Program. The programs will be produced by the Extension Communications Center at Kansas State University. AAW First Vice-President Chris Wilson, Kansas Agri-Women, is the project director.

"We're excited about this opportunity to help farm and ranch women nationwide by providing them with information that will help them with their operation," Chris stated. "In addition, we will be providing many risk management resources at our website in conjunction with the TV series. There will also be opportunities for networking with farm women through the program."

If you are have suggestions for program content, email Chris at membership@americanagriwomen.org.

For more information please contact AAW president Marcie Williams at president@americanagriwomen.org, or visit the American Agri-Women website at http://www.americanagriwomen.org.
