NATIONAL AG DAY
National Ag Day is observed annually. This day is a day for all to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture across the United States. American agriculture plays a very critical economic and food security role in our country.
Farm co-ops, universities, 4-H clubs, agricultural associations, FFA clubs, businesses and other organizations at the city, county and state levels celebrate with a variety of events that give the general public an opportunity to see how their food, clothing and other products get from the farm to you.
These events also demonstrate the economic impact agriculture has on a society.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Check your local newspaper or online listings for events near you. Use #NationalAgDay to post on social media.
The National Ag Day Program and The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) were both started in 1973 as a way to increase public awareness of agriculture’s role in society. You will find additional information at http://www.agday.org/
