Stay Rooted Louisiana

Reducing farm and ranch stress

Farming is one of the most stressful occupations in the United States. From financial pressures and volatile markets to unpredictable weather and extreme working conditions, the stressors of farm and ranch life can lead to health issues and strained relationships.

The Stay Rooted Louisiana program is one of the department’s newest initiatives and aims to reduce farm stress among our agriculture communities. With the goals of raising mental health awareness, providing training, and building resources, Stay Rooted is focused on sharing tools and information to better equip Louisiana’s farming community to deal with farm succession, financial management, and disaster preparedness.

We believe we're stronger together. And we're here to help.
