GFO: Planning and patience

As wheat harvest will be starting up in the province, Grain Farmers of Ontario hopes all farmers will have a safe and timely harvest.

Please remember to protect yourselves and those you work with by practicing social distancing when delivering grain. Contact your delivery point and ask what requirements are expected this harvest season as a result of COVID-19. This may affect how you bring samples in for moisture checks or how receipts are received as most locations
are not allowing people in the buildings. Plan ahead, be patient, and be safe.

Grain Farmers of Ontario would like to remind our members to take care of themselves. Managing your stress is important at the best of times, but it is especially important during times like we are seeing now with the COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever managing stress becomes so important to your well-being and to the success of your farm.

Here are three things you can do to manage your stress:
1. Focus more on what you can control, than on the things you cannot control.
2. Connect with those who are important to you. If you are feeling overwhelmed, reach out to someone you trust.
3. Eat healthy. Keep nutritious snacks with you so you can eat regularly and eat healthy.
