It’s not a big secret my love and respect of Agriculture. Not only because I am a third generation Dairy Farmer and my families livelihood depends on agriculture but because Agriculture is our most important resource in our Nation and World.
Dairy Goddess Urges Celebration For National Ag Day! Party Till The Cows Come Home!
March 6, 2011 by dairygoddess
As time has progressed so many have become removed from the farms that bring them food and fiber.
Ag Day, March 15th, was created by the Agriculture Council of America (ACA). They are an organization of leaders in the agriculture, food and fiber communities. Their goal is to bring awareness of agriculture’s important role in our daily lives. This program was started in 1973.
I urge you to check out their website http://www.agday.org/ . Share it with your family, especially those young ones that have not had the blessing of visiting a farm. Urge your children or grandchildren’s teachers to check out this special day.
Ag day is EVERYDAY…as everyday there are farmers working hard to provide food and clothing and so very much more that we often take for granted.
Just because Ag day for us farmers is everyday that doesn’t mean I am not going to celebrate! Celebration on March 15th will begin early with the cream in my coffee. I will rejoice and be grateful for the clothes on my back. All day, as I fuel my body with the nutrition that comes from our food that we would not have with Agriculture. As I end my day with a glass of wine…I will raise it in honor of the farmer who provided it.
Happy Ag Day….everyone!
