Dairy Farmer's Journal: Stress Relief|
By Kathleen M.Tenpas on March 31, 2010
Farming, along with the rest of the economy, has taken a big hit this past year. As dairy farmers, we saw prices for milk that were identical to those we received in 1980. Feed prices soared, gas and fuel prices were high. The stress levels on farms became explosive resulting in some very tragic events. Farm magazines are full of articles on battling stress. Stan and I read them and nod, yes, these things can be helpful, but we have developed our own methods of stress relief.
