Purdue Extension - Vermillion County will host a free 2020 Agricultural Outlook & Farm Stress Management breakfast at 8:15 am on Monday December 16th at the Vermillion County Fairgrounds Community Building in Cayuga Park.
The Agricultural Outlook session is to help farmers and agribusiness managers make better business decisions in the coming year. “Now that the Harvest is Over, What Next?” will be presented by Amy Gamble, Grain Origination Specialist at Cargill – Dana. She will give a market update about what to watch for in the next few months and look ahead to the 2020 crop, with time for questions.
After the outlook, Purdue Extension will present Weathering the Storm in Agriculture: How to Cultivate a Productive Mindset to help farmers and their families understand the signs and symptoms of chronic stress and to build skills in recognizing and responding to mental health concerns in themselves and others. Resources about how to handle stress for a more productive mindset on the farm will also be discussed.
