Farming is tough. From weather to equipment breakdowns, there are a lot of things that can cause stress. Researchers at Michigan State University Extension conducted a research study to learn more about struggles farmers experience and what types of information may help. The study involved the use of text messaging to provide information to help farmers manage farm stress. Participants received text messages with information and resources relating to managing stress, coping strategies, farm management resources, and more.
