Farm Bureau Celebrates National Ag Day

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS

American agriculture is responsible for providing the necessities of everyday life ... food, fiber, clothing and even fuel. That’s the message of National Ag Day, which is celebrated March 8, 2012. Producers, agricultural associations,corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America will gather to celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture in Pennsylvania, and the United States.

The National Ag Day program is committed to increasing public awareness about American agriculture. As the world population soars, there is even greater demand for the food, fiber and renewable resources that the United States produces.

The Agriculture Council of America believes that 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. They should 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 industry.

Join this effort to promote American agriculture to everyone during National Ag Day, March 8. For more information contact the Agriculture Council of America at 913-491-1895 or visit www.agday.org.

The Fulton County Farm bureau is a voluntary organization that works to advance the interests of agriculture and rural communities. It offers numerous benefits and services to its 350 members.
