This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Ag Day - a day for Americans to express their appreciation for the affordable and nutritious food, and those who grow it, in the United States.
“National Agriculture Day is a great opportunity for agriculturalists to share their knowledge, dedication and commitment to the future’s safe, affordable and abundant food supply,” said Kent Schescke, director of government and nonprofit relations at the National FFA Organization. “It also creates an opportunity for our state FFA officers to meet with their government representatives and discuss the current and future state of agriculture in their communities.”
The National FFA Organization, 4-H and Agriculture Future for America coordinate with the Agricultural Council of America to stage National Ag Day each year. The event began in 1973. For more about National Agriculture Day, visit www.AgDay.org.
