Agriculture: Food for Life

National Ag Day is March 21, 2017. This day recognizes and celebrates the abundance provided by American agriculture. Dairy farmers play an important role in your everyday life, providing you and your family with wholesome and nutritious milk, cheese and yogurt.

Did you know that less than 2-percent of the American population has any tie to the agriculture community? Each day, when you sit down to eat, the food on your plate or in your bowl has been grown, cared-for and harvested by an American farmer.

Our executive director, Dave Smith, shares a few thoughts on the importance of farmers in this #AgDay video.
