#MENtalHealthMonday Part 2 of 4: Farmers have feelings - Life on the Farm with Dustin Melius
800 dairy farms closed in Wisconsin last year. Let that sink in.
800. That's more than 2 a day.
This is Dustin Melius. He's a dairy farmer.
Dustin is a dairy farmer who still has a functioning dairy farm.
How did he manage to survive during such tough times? With all of his livelihood being in this farm, and his father being his only other FULL TIME employee, life has to be tough.
We talk about the state of the agriculture business from a Dairy Farmer's perspective, the misconceptions about the farming industry, and what we can all do to help them out - SPOILER ALERT: It's super easy to help these hard working Americans.
You can always reach out for help.
