Farmers Drought Stress!

Farmers facing Stress has been on the News and in the Papers over the last couple of years over the summers. The issue’s they face are DROUGHT-leads to Stress-Cashflow-Stock-Livelyhood and human survival. Their stress rises as they battle against rainfall shortages. The farmers are told that if they have a plan for natural disarter and have a grip on their financers their stress level would be grately reduced. Of course this advise was only ment as long as the drought went for one to two years not for year after years. As we now have been aware it has been years for the farmers dealing with Drought Stress-Seasonal Fluctuation-Short Term-Medium and Long Term forcast. Living on the farm with their family as the whole family gets involved with the running of everyday farm work activities, the Stress is felt by all. The Stress the farmer and the family faces have in some cases lead to marriage failure, leading to seperation. Depression sets in as they face a situation they fill they have no control on. In some of these cases it has lead to suiside.
The Farmers Drought Stress can be potentually greater than the drought itself.

The farmers are our back bone-our bread and water to our survival and they need all our help anyway we can give it. We can make a start by supporting our local farmers. We can buy from our local farmers rather than the large supermarkets chains. We can educate ourselves with what we are eating, Product knowledge of how our produce is grown and how is it preserved. Is it Organic or has chemicals been used?. After all it is in our best interest to live healthy, longer and happier and knowing we are helping our farmers in anyway we can!
