As Gov. Tony Evers calls on lawmakers to deal with the state’s dairy crisis, a state agency is hoping to ease some mental stress by helping farmers plan for the future of their farms.

The University of Wisconsin-Extension is hosting a series of workshops called “Cultivating Your Farm Future” across the state in the next couple of months designed to help farmers dealwith the financial future of their farm and possibly relieve some stress that’s led to a greater risk of mental health issues among farmers.

“With the farm stress and the low commodity prices we’ve had in the last five years planning for the future, it’s really hard to do that when you’re just planning for the next day,” said Kaitlyn Lance, an agriculture educator and certified farm succession coordinator for UW-Extension in La Crosse County.
