Farming is one of the most stressful occupations in the U.S. This stress can affect decision making during challenging times, particularly for dairy farmers as they are experiencing extended low milk prices. Mark your calendar for noon on Tuesday, July 10 and join Dr. Larry Tranel, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Dairy Field Specialist and psychologist, along with Dr. John Shutske, Extension Specialist, University of Wisconsin, as they focus on the mental health element of dairy farm stress. Learn how stress affects our health and decision-making process as dairy farmers, and ways to recognize stress.
