The president of Minnesota Farm Bureau says the level of farm stress is intensifying.
Kevin Paap tells Brownfield several issues combined are causing a lot of anxiety.
“It’s trade, it’s Farm Bill, it’s concerns with the Renewable Fuel Standard, concerns with ag labor and regulation. It just seems like the intensity is turned up.”
And for some farmers, weather isn’t helping matters.
Paap tells Brownfield parts of southern Minnesota were recently dumped on with up to 7 inches of rain.
