New Webinar Series for Farm and Ranch ManagementThe Department of Ag Economics is launching a new webinar series to discuss COVID-19’s impact on farm/ranch management issues in Nebraska.
#socialdistancing: Create Physical Distance but Stay in TouchIt may be easier to stay six feet from the nearest person but that doesn’t mean that farmers and ranchers aren’t having to cope with uncertainty. Learning to recognize your stressors and how to manage stress can help you personally and those around you. If you recognize someone in distress, use a caring approach in listening to them, and then connect them to resources.
