Meeting focusing on farmers' wellbeing

A meeting in Kiel next week is just the latest opportunity for farmers in Door and Kewaunee counties to get the help they need during a struggling dairy industry. Hosted by UW-Extension offices in six different counties, the morning meeting entitled “Supporting Farmers during Struggling Times” will host speakers focusing on three key areas. The areas include a look into finances, tips on coping with pressures of farm life, and strategies to deal with the new financial normal. Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says there is increased effort to focus on the farmer’s wellbeing in addition to their animals.

Bjurstrom applauded an addition to the recently passed farm bill for putting aside funding for mental health resources for farmers.  We have information on how you can sign up for the January 9th meeting online with this story.
