Mental health seminar launched to help farmers build resilience

The campaign, #RearingToGo, is set to host a conference and workshop on mental health on September 13, followed by an auction of calves and breeding hoggets at Halls Livestock Auction Centre in Shrewsbury.

 

It follows a successful calf auction on March 2 which raised almost £19,000 for Teac Tom, a charity which provides counselling and support to people who have been bereaved by suicide.

 

Teaming up with Volac for the second time, the decision to relaunch #RearingToGo was inspired after the overwhelming support from UK farmers.

Peter and Paula Hynes, who created the campaign in late 2018, said the workshop was to ‘build resilience and provide people with practical tools to manage their mental well-being on a daily basis.’

 

Speakers include NFU vice-president Stuart Roberts as well as representatives from leading agricultural charities.

 

Auction

Any donations of calves or breeding hoggets would be greatly appreciated and donors will be given Volac milk replacer products as a thank you.

 

All auction proceeds will go directly to three charities: the Cheshire Agricultural Chaplaincy, the DPJ Foundation and the Farming Community Network (FCN).

 

The event is free but attendees must register their interest to Peter Hynes on peterhynes1979@gmail.com or 00353 87 0644678, as well as those donating stock.
