YOUR TEXAS AGRICULTURE MINUTE
Texas AgrAbility helps farmers, ranchers overcome challenges
By Gary Joiner
A disability. A chronic health condition. A functional limitation.
These are real-life challenges for many. But for those in agriculture, such challenges can be especially difficult to overcome. The work is physically stressful.
That’s where Texas AgrAbility steps in.
Texas AgrAbility is administered by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. It is part of a nationwide network of disability and agricultural service providers. It connects farmers, ranchers, their family members and/or farm and ranch workers to those who can help.
Individualized consultation is key.
Farm and ranch assessments, agribusiness assessments, technical assistance and recommendations, and business planning resources and assistance are available.
Empowering farmers and ranchers and others to remain in production agriculture is the goal.
The “Can Do” spirit of Texas farmers and ranchers is legendary. They will find a way to get the job done.
Texas AgrAbility is a partner for those with challenges to do exactly that. Safely and efficiently.
The preceding commentary is brought to you by Texas Farm Bureau, the “Voice of Texas Agriculture.” Called “Your Texas Agriculture Minute,” TFB will issue thought-provoking editorials each week—via print and audio—to spark understanding of agriculture in the Lone Star State and its impact on each and every Texan.
