Ag Day Sponsorship

For more than 40 years, the Agriculture Council of America—in partnership with the nation’s leading agricultural companies and with grassroots supporters across the country—has worked to enhance public awareness and appreciation of the contributions of agriculture in America.

The annual observance of National Agriculture Day is at the center of these efforts. The next Ag Day is March 21, 2017. This will mark the 44th anniversary of National Ag Day. The theme for 2017 is Agriculture: Food For Life.
In the months leading up to Ag Day, individuals involved in agriculture work with schools, clubs and other community organizations to plan activities to recognize and celebrate the event. Lesson plans for classrooms. Community breakfasts or similar gatherings. Point-of-purchase and on-farm displays. Outreach to local legislators and media.


The goal is simple: to establish—or enhance—the understanding of how food, fiber and renewable resource products are made, and through that understanding, build a growing appreciation for the contributions of agriculture as a:
 

  • source for safe, abundant and affordable products

  • positive force in the local, national and global economy

  • vital part of meeting the growing global challenge of hunger
