American agriculture is responsible for providing the necessities of everyday life – food, fiber, clothing, and even fuel. That’s the message National Ag Day will be celebrated on March 8. The National Ag Day program is committed to increasing public awareness about American agriculture. Producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America will gather to celebrate the abundance provided by American agriculture.
The Agriculture Council of America, organizers of National Ag Day, believes every American should understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced, and should value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy. Americans should also appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
National Ag Day will focus on educating Americans about the industry, so they may also acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries. Focused on sharing how agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis, the National Ag Day program helps educate millions of consumers each year.
