LIBERTY, August 18, 2017 - Is a disability or chronic health condition making it difficult for you to carry out the day to day tasks required on your farm or ranch? If so, the Texas AgrAbility project can help keep you in the field and behind the machines that are necessary to provide for your livelihood.
Texas AgrAbility assists, connects, and empowers producers with disabilities and chronic illness to remain in production agriculture. Texas AgrAbility (funded through USDA-NIFA) was established to assist Texas ag producers, their families, and/or employees who are affected by a disabling/chronic condition to start or stay engaged in production agriculture.
Texas AgrAbility serves current and former military, farmers, ranchers, individuals with disabilities, injuries and/or chronic illness and families and workers of these individuals.
Texas AgrAbility offers farm and ranch assessments, recommendations for modifications and accommodations, home environment and business assessments, and business plan assistance.
You will gain training and education, resources, information, and referrals, secondary injury prevention and a network of professionals.
If you are interested in attending the workshop, please call the Extension Office at 936-334-3230 by close of business day on Thursday, September 7, 2017 to reserve your spot.
