National Ag Day is March 25
19 Feb, 2014
Organized by the Agriculture Council of America (ACA), Ag Day, held in Washington, D.C., reminds Americans that agriculture is amazing — providing our nation with a safe, sustainable and bountiful food supply.
This year will mark the 41st anniversary of National Ag Day which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. The theme for National Ag Day is “Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.”
On March 25 the ACA will host major events in the nation’s capital including the Mix-and-Mingle Luncheon and the National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner. Additionally, the ACA will bring approximately 100 college students to Washington to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill.
These events mark a nationwide effort to tell the story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. A number of producers, agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.
