March 21 proclaimed as National Ag Day
President Joe Biden has proclaimed March 21, 2023 National Ag Day. This year marks the seventh year that The White House has publicly recognized National Ag Day as a salute to the contributions of America’s farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses.
The proclamation highlights the spirit of innovation and dedication across America’s agricultural communities while highlighting the many challenges farmers face.
Amy Bradford of Growmark is chair of the Agriculture Council of America, the national organization charged with promoting National Ag Day. She said receiving this type of recognition from the Biden administration greatly enhances the stature of National Ag Day as well as the many local and state Ag Day activities planned around the country.
“More importantly, it reminds everyone that the safe, affordable, abundant and nutritious food that they depend on every day comes to them thanks to the hard work and resilience of 2 million American farmers and ranchers,” Bradford said in a news release.
