Farm Stress and Decision Making
What causes stress for farmers and farm families?
Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
*** I haven't started the paperwork for that major loan due next week!
*** I just learned two producers in my county lost their milk contracts!
*** Should I go back to school with so much economic uncertainty?
***How will I ever find time to learn more about precision farming?
*** We were supposed to start in the field at 8 a.m. and my two most important operators are not here yet!
*** My spouse and I aren’t able to talk about things the way we used to…
*** I haven’t had a moment to myself since we added all that custom work to make our business plan feasible.
*** Who knows whether the big tractor will make it through another full chopping season?
