Stress seems to be prevalent in the agriculture sector, with even more concerns arising due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many farmers and ranchers are facing financial strains, marketing uncertainties, along with regular challenges such as production risks and farm transfer issues, and more. When temporary stress turns into chronic stress, it can impact health and mental wellness.

Nebraska Extension, in partnership with Michigan State Extension’s “Communicating with Farmers Under Stress” curriculum, will present this online webinar over the lunch hour for individuals who work with farmers and ranchers on a regular basis, such as bank lenders, ag suppliers, educators and consultants, healthcare professionals, and anyone involved with the lives of farmers and ranchers.

In addition to being helpful for working with farmers and ranchers, the workshop educates participants about stress in their own lives and how it can affect physical health and relationships with family or coworkers.
