AgrAbility of Utah sponsored booths at the Utah/Arizona Range Livestock Workshops April 5 in Orderville, UT, and April 6 in Hurricane, UT. The Range Livestock Workshop brings ranchers, industry professionals, and government agency personnel together to foster excellent working relationships and effective partnerships. The exhibit included an AgrAbility tabletop display and outreach materials.
Members of the Utah State University Collegiate FFA and the Beaver River FFA chapter joined forces April 16 to complete a farm makeover for an AgrAbility of Utah client. The students stacked wood and cleared brush and debris. The grateful family marveled at how, in only two hours, the group completed a project that the family had been struggling to finish for two years.
During the state FFA Career Development Events (CDEs) on April 26 in Logan, staff from AgrAbility of Utah and the Utah Assistive Technology Program provided information and examples of how common farm technologies can help reduce long-term wear and tear on the body. Students also had a chance to challenge each other and reinforce their knowledge with an interactive online game.
