Webinar: Addressing Military Needs in Agriculture

Summary: Veterans have a long history of service to our country through military service and through agriculture. The 2017 USDA report added a new special category of producers: “Producers with Military Service”. This report identified that 370,019 men and women agriculture producers claimed the title of US veteran, with 294,974 of them having spent more than 10 years on their farm. Recently much attention has highlighted veterans’ participation in farming. With this new attention, it is important to understand the unique characteristics and needs of those veterans. 

Objectives: At the end of this presentation the learner will be able to:

  • Outline the unique challenges that veterans face when returning from service to build a career in agriculture.

  • Utilize resources that are available to veterans that provide support for their unique challenges.
Intended Audience: All healthcare professionals, health and safety professionals, veteran healthcare administrators, farm/ranch owner and operators, public health, agricultural professionals working in academia, business or production, organizations working with veteran farmers, veterans and veteran groups.
