This year National Agriculture Day is on Tuesday, March 19th. What is National Ag Day? “National Ag Day, a time when producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America gather to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by American agriculture.”
For those of you in the agriculture industry I encourage you to share your story on Ag Day. Share with others why you are agriculture proud. Share with others why we need farmers like YOU. I ask those of you who are not in the agriculture industry to stop and listen, ask questions and give thanks to the farmer. I believe every day is Ag Day because every day we are consuming products farmers have worked so hard to produce for us. And every day is Ag Day to the farmer because it is their life.
To sum it up, I ask all of you to observe and celebrate National Agriculture Day with me on Tuesday, March 19th. I also encourage you to remember and give thanks that every day is really Ag Day.
