U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue is ringing in National Ag Day by recognizing the important work America’s farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers do each day to feed and clothe the world.

“For the past 45 years, National Ag Day has played a key role in helping people understand where their food and fiber comes from and how important agriculture is to our national economy,” said Secretary Perdue. “Our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers in America are feeding and clothing the world – and it’s important to never forget that. I am thrilled that we have a day, really a whole week, where we can celebrate the bounty of the American harvest.”
