The March 28 and April 4 print editions of The Brillion News will feature articles focusing on the financial stress affecting dairy farmers in 2019, and the resulting emotional stress that has health care professionals worried about depression and suicide in our rural communities.
In this exclusive series, DARK SKIES & SILVER LININGS, we look at the financial realities of dairy farming in an age of overproduction and low prices, and how it affects the mental and emotional stability of farmers and their families. If this sounds like “gloom and doom,” it is not. The stress is there, but so are positive options to shed the burdens of financial and emotional stress.
