AgrAbility staff participated in the local county Rural Safety Days, events designed to encourage youth throughout the area to learn safety practices on the farm. The staff taught more than 300 kids about potential hazards on the farm and ways to avoid them through a show and tell and about assistive technology used on the farm through a BINGO game.

This month is crazy in Wisconsin as farmers and dairy enthusiasts show their Wisconsin dairy pride! AgrAbility staff have attended multiple dairy breakfasts and dairy-focused events to promote the AgrAbility of Wisconsin project and educate both farming and non-farming communities about safety on the farm and assistive technology.

AgrAbility staff attended the WI State FFA Convention to talk with students, teachers, and FFA advisors, about the opportunity with the agricultural career exploration course taught by AgrAbility's partner, Easterseals Wisconsin's Ami Cooper. Over the course of the day, more than 900 attendees went through the convention hall.
