Rural and Farm Stress Task Force

From historic rains that kept many growers out of their fields this year, to tariffs and low commodity prices, many Ohio farmers are struggling.
 



At the discretion of Dean Kress last spring, CFAES convened the Rural and Farm Stress Task Force (go.osu.edu/agcrisis), composed of experts who can connect farmers and their families with OSU Extension specialists or specialists within the community.

Working with Ohio State’s College of Social Work, the task force can offer resources for emotional support, including finding mental health providers, assisting farmers with management questions, and helping people find jobs off the farm.

Whether it’s navigating new tax laws or understanding the U.S. trade policy’s impact on agriculture, CFAES encourages growers and producers to #LeanOnYourLandGrant.
