Webinar: Managing Stress in an Era of Ag Uncertainty

Managing Stress in an Era of Ag Uncertainty

Date: Monday, January 7, 2019
Time: 1:00 pm
Speaker: Dr. Mike Rosmann

The Farm Bureau webinar series continues on Monday, January 7, at 1:00 pm with a live webinar to provide information and resources to help with farm stress. Agricultural producers are struggling to achieve profits currently, but farmers have little control over most conditions that affect their economic well-being. While farmers can’t control the weather or crop/livestock disease outbreaks, and have limited input into governmental policies that influence agriculture and trade, farmers have much control over their own behaviors. This webinar offers strategies for behavior management that can help farmers deal with stress in order to function optimally as producers of food and renewable fuels.

Dr. Mike Rosmann, a farmer/psychologist, lives on his family farm near Harlan, Iowa. He writes a weekly column called Farm and Ranch Life that appears in 30 farming publications, including Iowa Farmer Today. Most of his life’s work is to improve the behavioral health of agricultural producers.
