Michigan State University Extension Managing Farm Stress

“Every day, farmers take meticulous care of their animals and crops, ensuring they are healthy and safe. Yet farmers need support to manage their own stress and fatigue. This stress can become especially intense when an on-farm injury occurs, commodity prices are low or natural disasters decrease yield.

Whether these stresses come from a financial issue or the stresses of everyday life, MSU Extension can help. If you’re concerned about yourself, a family member, a friend or a neighbor, MSU Extension has a suite of resources and educators that can help identify and manage stress.”
