Mental Health in Agriculture
Working in agriculture is a worthy and honorable profession; however, it is not always easy. It is important to not only care for your crops and livestock, but for yourself as well. In agriculture's high stress atmosphere, your physical and mental health should never be overlooked. For questions or additional help, please contact Mallory Meek, Agriculture and Natural Resources Agent, at 785-843-7058 or email@example.com.
