State Representative Tony McCombie is joining event hosts, Representative Dan Swanson and the Illinois Farm Bureau, to promote a FREE webinar titled Stronger Together: Resilience on the Farm and Beyond on Tuesday, July 28 at 7:00pm.
“Illinois farmers, producers and ag related businesses are facing some of the toughest times for the industry and for their families, likely in their lifetimes during COVID and struggling market prices,” said Rep. Swanson. “Too often, these same farmers are expected to stay strong all the time and often do not seek help, or coping advice or the resources available to them. This internalizing of the struggle can, and too often does, end tragically.”
“During these trying times in agriculture, we need to ensure we support our farmers in taking on these tough times together,” said Rep. McCombie.
The Illinois Farm Bureau put together the Stronger Together: Resilience on the Farm & Beyond webinar after talking with Swanson and other members of the Illinois House Agriculture & Conservation Committee.
