New Web site helps stressed-out pork producers

Thanks to high feed costs and below-cost hog prices, pork producers are experiencing a lot of stress these days. The University of Minnesota Extension has launched a coordinated set of web resources to help them with tough financial questions.

The site, Pork Producer Resources for Difficult Financial Times, connects producers to researched-based information on production, economics, business management and legal questions to consider. The site also provides resources for managing family-related issues and personal stress.

Producers who do not have access to the Internet may call Extension's toll-free Farm Information Line at 800/232-9077.
