Battery-operated prunerA Michigan AgrAbility client, who wanted to remain anonymous, wanted everyone to know how appreciative he was of the services he received from Ned Stoller. The MI Facebook page has the story about a battery-operated pruner and backpack unit that allows this client to continue to farm!

Minimizing the likelihood of an injury while traveling from field to field, using the public roads in their tractors or other agricultural vehicles, is always a challenge for Michigan farmers. Making sure their agricultural vehicles and towed implements have an appropriate slow-moving vehicle emblem affixed and have appropriate lighting, so the farm vehicle is seen by other drivers, is imperative. Michigan AgrAbility's Facebook page highlighted the Michigan Secretary of State Agricultural Vehicle Safety Requirements webpage to give the agricultural community a "heads up" reminder for the necessary spring travel on the road.

Although a few years old, while searching for Michigan AgrAbility on the Internet, staff came across the Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS) AgrAbility promotion brochure highlighting how MRS can augment Michigan AgrAbility services. MRS is a department within Michigan's Department for Health and Human Services that placed the Michigan AgrAbility brochure on their website.
