Calling all women involved in equine businesses! The University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, in conjunction with the University of Maryland Cooperative Extension, is hosting a Women In Ag Equine Business focused series of programs in November 2018. The supper series is open to both women and men but the primary target is female equine business operators.

The program series blends friendly discussion and the opportunity for networking over dinner with presentations by guest speakers. The information presented is designed to help equine operators to strengthen their skills to manage risk and promote farm and business growth. Topics covered will include:

  • Who is in Business with You? Understanding Business Structures
  • What Color Are You? Learn How Different Color Personalities Can Work Well Together
  • An Introduction to Business Plans
  • What is a Lender Looking for?
  • Understanding Credit and Credit Reports
  • Farm and Equine Insurance
  • The Value of Social Media for an Equine Business
  • Building Your Social Media Presence
  • Opportunity for an additional Hands-on Computer Session on Quick Books – date and location to be determined based on interest.

Past program participants said that as a result of their participation, 80% would implement change to their current business structure, 70% would change their insurance policy, 100% would use the resource materials from the program and 90% showed interest in follow up or advanced business management training.
