AgrAbility of Wisconsin and the National Farm Medicine Center are organizing an AgrAbility Summit later this spring. The event will take place March 16 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Marshfield Clinic in Marshfield.

The daylong program gives participants an opportunity to network and learn about resources available through AgrAbility and other Wisconsin programs. Topics to be covered include pain management, finances and farm transitions, Easter Seals and AgrAbility farm technology, and hot topics in agriculture. Alice in Dairyland Zoey Brooks will also be on hand.

"We are very excited about this year's summit," said Hannah Gerbitz, Outreach Specialist for AgrAbility. "With our new grant in place, as well as some new staff members, we are ready to take our summit to new heights. Our team looks forward to providing our farmers with the opportunity to network, think about their financial future, and learn more about the agriculture topics that are affecting farmers today."

Registrations will be accepted until March 10 by calling 608-262-9336.

AgrAbility of Wisconsin is a partnership that combines the disability expertise of Easter Seals Wisconsin with the educational networking capabilities of the UW-Extension to provide a comprehensive program for farmers and their families affected by disabilities. The program helps farmers and their families continue to farm safely and successfully.
