New resource gives Island farming community more mental health support

Prince Edward Island’s farmers and their families have a new resource to help them deal with the mental and emotional stress that can come with farming life.

The new website www.farmerstalk.ca (link is external) encourages farmers, producers and family members to open up about the challenges they face, to support each other and to reach out for help with any mental health struggles they may be dealing with. The site reminds farmers that they are not alone and includes personal messages about mental health, links to support services and advice on how farmers can take care of their mental health before it becomes a crisis.

CONGRATULATIONS!

On behalf of our Lactanet Atlantic Team and our entire Lactanet staff, I want to acknowledge and congratulate the Top Herd Performance Index herds for PEI, Carruthers Farm Ltd (Mike Carruthers and Family) in third position; Tiny Acres Holsteins (Wade and Logan Bryanton) in second position; and, in particular, Jewell Dale Farm Inc. (Logan Jewell and Family) who finished as the Top PEI herd, Top Atlantic herd, and #9 in all of Canada! This is truly an amazing accomplishment and one that is well deserved as we know that Logan and his team have been working hard at these six areas of management! Congratulations!

The 2020 school will be the 9th edition of the Atlantic Young Breeders School.

Participants will be grouped into small teams. They will be tasked with evaluating a farm scenario and developing solutions and a plan for this farm. Work will be based on the seminars and farm tours provided throughout the weekend. Prizes will be provided to the top individuals and teams.
