NCBA Webinars Help Farmers and Ranchers Part 1
All this coronavirus stuff is stressful on farmers and ranchers... Josh White with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association says his team is stepping up efforts to make sure you have access to information that could help your mental and emotional health.
“One of those examples would be our Cattlemen’s Webinar Series that we have, and we’ve added a webinar here to respond to these events. We know that folks get stressed out and all these changes in routine can lead to not only us trying to protect our physical health and stay healthy out there, but we need to pay attention to our mental and emotional health as well. A lot of stress in the markets, I know, can be extremely stressful too, and the uncertainties. So we’ve added a webinar called When Stress is more than a Season. We have two counselors that specialize in farm and ranch management counseling, and farm and rancher counseling. They know the right questions that you should be asking. They know the right tips and tricks for our industry, for signs that folks might need some additional support and that sort of thing. So we would highly recommend that you join. These webinars are always recorded and posted within 24 hours so you can watch the recording later this week.”
