If we’re going to get through this, we have to identify ways to manage the uncertainty and fear.

Everything is hard right now. I know that, you know that. What’s worse is that it’s all out of our control. In times like these, I need two things. First, someone to vent to — a close friend or family member who’s occasionally willing to let me complain for a good 20 minutes. Secondly, I need something positive to focus on. Dairy’s future is so uncertain right now, even more so than usual, so in the video, I tried to focus on what we have. Hopefully, it’s something good to distract you.
