Farm Management Fridays: FARMing for Health

Evidence-based research suggests that small time investments spent planning and setting goals dramatically reduce stress by giving producers a stronger sense of control in times of uncertainty. The FARM tool helps producers focus their actions and resources in ways that provide a maximum ROI. Too often, we deal with stress by simply “working harder.” This often leads to other outcomes that impact our health, relationships and safety. Tools and techniques that support focused planning with other team members along with simple powerful ways to practice gratitude and “being present” helps producers and family members insure that their most precious resources are FARMED effectively. In this webinar Extension Specialist, John Shutske and Vernon County Extension Educator Ashley Olson will discuss FARMing tools for healthy farm businesses. Audience: Adults. Cost: no cost. Registration Required: Yes. Event Type: Virtual/Online. Topic: Livestock. Crops & Soils. Dairy. Farm Management. County: Adams. Ashland. Barron. Bayfield. Brown. Buffalo. Burnett. Calumet. Chippewa.
