The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) is hosting a workshop in Detroit Lakes Tuesday (9am-noon) that will address stress for farmers and how best to handle it. The MDA’s Meg Moynihan says bad news can trigger difficult conversations.

Moynihan says workshop topics will include reducing anxiety and fear about interpersonal conflict and exploring the connection between conflict and change. Other workshops are being held in Thief River Falls, Duluth, Marshall, Faribault and St. Cloud.
