Extension offers Equine series this fall

Equine Series Annie’s Project

Annie's Project EquineA Cooperative Extension partnership between the University of Delaware and the University of Maryland Extension will offer a unique Equine Annie’s Project specific to horse farm owners and managers. Download the Annie’s Project Equine Series brochure.

The program blends friendly discussions over dinner with various guest speakers and will focus on topics of farm insurance and liability, credit, financing, social media, and marketing. Each scheduled evening session offers a different discussion topic.

Information presented on these risk management topics will allow equine owners and managers to strengthen their skills to successfully manage risk to promote farm growth and success! Equine Annie’s Project is designed to empower women in agriculture to manage information and learn about agriculture in a relaxed local network. The target audience is women with a passion for agriculture (but all including men are welcome to participate). Don’t manage a large horse farm? Individual horse owners are welcome too.

Two locations are available: Dover, Del. and Salisbury, Md.. Sign up for the closest location to you! The equine series is being held November 1, 3, and 9, 2016 from 6 to 9 p.m. Cost is $60.00 per person for the 3-day series and includes dinner along with all course materials.
