EAGLE BUTTE, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota State University Extension is offering a series of courses aimed at helping women in agriculture.

Topics include farm record-keeping, marketing, communication skills, insurance, and retirement and estate planning. The series of six classes begins June 15 at the Tribal Wellness Center in Eagle Butte.

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.

The deadline to register in June 10. The cost is $150 per person and could be reduced based on the local sponsorship received.
