What is Ag Day?
The National Ag Day program was started in 1973 with The Agriculture Council of America. This year's Ag day is on Tuesday, March 23. It's a day to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture. Every year, producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies, and countless others across America join together to recognize the contributions of agriculture.
