This week’s Lunch & Learn:  “Ann Wolf and Dr. Rob Wallace, Co-Directors of Midwest Healthy Ag, join us to discuss a farmer-initiated research project dedicated to capturing the opinions of farmers on health, finances, COVID-19, and climate. The study’s focus includes interviews with Iowa farmers and nearly 100 farmers from across six Midwest states to weigh in with their opinions on a variety of topics around key problems farmers and rural communities more generally presently face. Wolf and Dr. Wallace will discuss the study process and noteworthy findings.

More information on the project: The interviews were part of a research study conducted across Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and Wisconsin. Participants were asked questions about their farm management practices, the history of their farm and plans for its future, their health and that of their families, COVID-19, and their views on the changing climate.”
