UW-Extension to host second farmer well-being conference

Farmers from Door and Kewaunee counties will not have to travel as far for a second conference aimed at their wellbeing. According to the state’s Department of Agriculture, Wisconsin saw approximately 700 farms shutter in 2018 as operators struggle with low prices for their products and rising costs to produce them. A meeting held earlier this year in Kiel was popular with information that was important, so Kewaunee County UW-Extension Agriculture Agent Aerica Bjurstrom says a second session was needed.

The deadline to register for the March 20th conference entitled “Supporting Farmers During Challenging Times” in Green Bay is March 15th. Topics to be discussed include agricultural lending, making decisions about the 2019 cropping season, and managing physical and mental wellness.
