Her bale cover is easy to use, durable and best of all, keeps the hay clean and dry despite stormy, windy weather.
I am proud of all my inventors, but I am especially proud of Deb because she has faced so many hurdles with grace, determination, and true mental agility. She thinks on her feet and she gets things done, nomatter what stands in her way. No Debbie Downer here: Deb Anspach embodies true grit and the American spirit!

It's all about staying the course and believing in your invention.
