The share of U.S. farms operated by women nearly tripled over the past three decades, from 5 percent in 1978 to 14 percent by 2012, according to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Since 2012, the trend is certainly continuing. Whether it be from inheriting farm ground, continuing the family operation, marrying into a farm family, or a host of other reasons, women find themselves in a position that requires knowledge of managing a farm operation with little background experience or training to do so.

The ability to use Excel spreadsheets allows users to have the capability to benefit from the many Excel calculators and tools publicly available. These day-long workshops will provide hands-on Excel training. The workshops will use laptop computers to allow participants to create their own spreadsheets. Various spreadsheets will be created which will teach the following skills: creating appropriate mathematical formulae and using the correct functions, linking between sheets, using absolute and relative references, formatting, copying, look-up tables, and what-if analysis.
