Farmers will also be asked if seeing certain types of stories in the media affect the way farmers think about animal welfare.

U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin has secured $20 million for her Dairy Business Innovation Initiative.
This funding will allow farmers to do things like creating and marketing new products, expand export markets and invest in efficient operations.
Another $10 million is going toward mental health resources for farmers and agriculture workers.
It will fund outreach programs, farmer-based support groups, websites, and helplines.
Baldwin says this funding will make a difference for Wisconsin farmers.
“There’s a whole range of activity that can be supported by these grant dollars for Farmers First, and these programs will save lives,” Baldwin said.
The Farmers First Act and Dairy Business Innovation Act are both included in the 2018 Farm Bill.

The moods of many dairy producers have been boosted by the first quarter performance of their dairy. With significantly higher milk check prices year-over-year, most dairies are making profitable margins according to Trent Dado, independent dairy nutrition and management consultant with GPS Consulting.
