‘Rural Realities’ Podcast Series to Address Farmer Stress
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) has created a new audio podcast series called “Rural Realities” that will initially focus on dealing with stress on the farm. “The goal of the podcast is to provide farmers, farm families and everyone in the agriculture sector with information and techniques to decrease stress in their lives and navigate the various challenges in farming,” said Jayne Krull, director of DATCP’s Farm Center. “While the first group of podcasts will focus on stress on the farm, the podcasts eventually will cover a wide range of topics impacting farmers and rural audiences.” The weekly series began June 22, 2020. The pre-recorded podcasts run between 20 and 30 minutes.
