The Border Line Risk Management Education Project included three educational conferences, two Rural Women In America Conferences (RWA) and the Southwest Ag Forum (SWAF). These projects brought a region of women and producers together to improve their Human, Financial, Production,& Legal Risk Management skills and to network with their peers.
The target region for this project was southwestern North Dakota, northwestern South Dakota, and southeastern Montana. Three hundred-seventy women attended the RWA conference featuring key-note speakers and multiple workshop sessions. One hundred-fifty producers attended the SWAF to address risk management topics such as: Energy-Efficient & Money Saving Decisions; 2007 Farm Bill; and Noxious Weed Management.
Through this project, attendees filled their risk management “toolbox” with new communication skills, 2007 Farm Bill considerations, financial analysis tools for their operations, health tips, noxious weed management tools, a new understanding for noxious weed laws and regulations, and a larger network of peers to sustain the viability of our rural families, communities, and region.
