The Nebraska AgrAbility loaner lift was quickly placed into service with long time AgrAbility client Ruth Griess after an unfortunate accident badly damaged her Life Essentials tractor access lift. Staff engineer John Davis had to replace a gearbox on the loaner lift shipped from Life Essentials before it could be used. Ruth is now back on the field cultivator doing field preparation ahead of the planter. The quick weekend repair job got Ruth back in the field again!
Online programs entitled "Our Stress and Communicating with Those who are Stressing" for all FSA Nebraska districts, as well as an ATV Aware online program for the Upper Big Blue Natural Resources District employees, were provided for hundreds of participants. AgrAbility was mentioned, described, and recommended for these key staff members who work with farmers and ranchers on a regular basis. It was an excellent opportunity to make many ag professionals aware of AgrAbility.
