Food brings everyone to the table. And this year, the virtual National Ag Day celebration is positioned to bring everyone together to recognize the importance of American agriculture.
The program taking place on March 23 will include both live and pre-recorded segments with remarks from government leaders on the agriculture industry’s economic growth opportunities and how the future will be shaped by lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A representative from the collegiate Ag Day student program will share their experiences and participants will get to hear the winning Ag Day essay as well as view the winning Ag Day video essay. 2021’s Outstanding Young Farmers will also be recognized during the event.
The program begins at 8:30 a.m. CST. You can register to attend now. AGDAILY is a sponsor of National Ag Day.
“Hosting a virtual Ag Day event has led to some creative ways to celebrate American ag,” said Jenny Pickett, president of the Agriculture Council of America. “The program will include informal thank you videos to farmers from individuals and companies in the industry so even though we can’t gather in person, it will still have a personal feel and energy to it.”
National Ag Day is organized by the Agriculture Council of America, a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community, dedicating its efforts to increasing the public’s awareness of agriculture’s role in modern society.
