AgrAbility of Utah

What is AgrAbility?

AgrAbility is part of a national program designed to help farmers, ranchers and their family members remain in agriculture when facing limitations due to aging, disease, injury, illness, or other disability.

Conditions may include:

  • Arthritis
  • Back injury
  • Chronic pain
  • Heart conditions
  • Hearing impairments or deafness
  • Visual impairments or blindness
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Post-polio syndrome
  • Amputations
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • And more

AgrAbility specialists analyze each situation and recommend practical solutions to restructure work tasks, modify agricultural operations, coordinate community and state resources, and customize a plan to meet individual and family needs for farmers or ranchers.

AgrAbility of Utah is a partnership between Utah State University Extension and Allies with Families. AgrAbility works closely with Vocational Rehabilitation and other agencies to secure funding for necessary accommodations.
