Why Host an Ag Day Event?
Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use, and wear on a daily basis, and is increasingly contributing to fuel and other bio-products. Help celebrate the valuable contributions of American agriculture by organizing or hosting an Ag Day Celebration event in your local community.
The National Ag Day program believes that every American should:
- Understand how food, fiber, and renewable resource products are produced.
- Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
- Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
- Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries.
"Agriculture is the most healthful, most useful and most noble employment of man." George Washington
