National Ag Day!

Today is National Ag Day! Ag Day was founded in 1973 to recognize and celebrate American agriculture. Here's a little info....

What Is Ag Day?

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.

What Is Ag Day All About?

Ag Day is about recognizing - and celebrating - the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
So many more facts about Ag Day can be found here. I really encourage you to go check out their site!

We won't be doing too much to celebrate here at Sethian Farm but carrying on as business as usual. It's pretty chilly and Bug isn't feeling great to begin with so I think we'll spend our time inside today. Of course S will be out there milking, feeding, fetching hay, and doing whatever else he needs to get done today. Please do whatever you can to celebrate and promote Agriculture today!
