Ag Day is a historic event that promotes recognition and appreciation for all those involved in American agriculture.
Celebrating Agriculture for 44 Years
The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) is dedicated to increasing public awareness of agriculture's vital role in our society. Comprised of leaders in the agriculture, food and fiber communities, the Agriculture Council of America along with the National Ag Day program was started in 1973.
Every spring, producers along with agricultural associations, companies, universities, government agencies and others across the country join together in recognition—and appreciation—of agriculture in our country.
Farming and Beyond
The need for food produced in the United States is dramatic. Each American farmer feeds more than 144 people.* Agriculture is this nation's #1 export and is essential in sustaining a healthy economy.
And it's not just the farmer who makes our food possible. The entire agriculture industry, all the way to the grocery store, are vital links in a chain that brings food to every citizen - and millions of people abroad. That's really what this day is all about . . . recognizing the role of agriculture - and celebrating it.
The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
Understand how food and fiber products are produced
Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products
Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy
Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry
