We celebrate National Ag Month to bring awareness to the significant contribution that the agricultural industry has on our society and its influence on our future. From food production to job creation, agriculture enriches nearly every part of our lives and plays a vital role in our local communities and across the country.
"Agriculture is our wisest pursuit because it will, in the end, contribute most to real wealth, good morals & happiness." –Thomas Jefferson
Show thanks this National Ag Month
Each March, National Ag Month takes place to show our appreciation to all of the dedicated hands that play a role in our nation's agriculture. And just how far does the impact of agriculture stretch? Well, almost everything you eat, use, and wear each day is a result of someone in the ag industry.
On March 22nd, we celebrate National Ag Day. This day brings producers, ag associations, corporations, universities, government agencies, and countless others together to recognize all that our industry brings to the table through programs and activities. According to the Agriculture Council of America (ACA), this day encourages Americans to educate themselves and their children on a handful of topics, including:
- How food, fiber, and renewable resource products are produced.
- The essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
- The role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant, and affordable products.
- Career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber, and renewable resource industries.
