Annie's Project, a nationally recognized program designed to empower farm and ranch women to become better business managers, operators and partners in agriculture, is coming back to Montana in January. Four sessions will be held beginning Jan. 11, in nine locations: Baker, Billings, Bozeman, Cut Bank, Great Falls, Havre, Lewistown, Miles City, and Wolf Point.

"Over 200 farm and ranch women participated in Annie's Project 2008," said Loree Morgan, program coordinator. "That interest and enthusiasm indicates a real need for this kind of education and we are targeting the topics this time to those most requested by previous attendees."

The program will be delivered in a series of four workshops that will combine lecture, discussion, hands-on computer work, and audio/visual support along with a group meal for socializing and networking with peers.
