AgrAbility of Wisconsin and the National AgrAbility Project are featured in an episode of America’s Heartland, a magazine-style half-hour national TV series. Appearing in the episode is Cheryl Skjolaas, Interim Director UW Center for Ag Safety and Health and Senior Outreach Specialist with the National AgrAbility Project. Based in the College’s Biological Systems Engineering department, AgrAbility provides education and assistance to farmers with disabilities and to disabled members of their families. In addition to Skjolaas, the program features two Wisconsin dairy farmers who were able to continue farming despite their disabilities thanks to help from AgrAbility.
