What Is Ag Day All About? (from the agday.org website)
Ag Day is about recognizing - and celebrating - the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
- Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
- Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
- Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
My Man and I contribute just a tiny bit to the agriculture industry, but we are proud to produce a quality product so you can have good, safe food on your table!
We do a lot of this...
|(usually from May through early September)|
|(three cuttings June, July and September)|
What alfalfa we grow that isn't good enough for dairy cows, we feed to our own cows to raise a few of these...
|(Early Girl - a 2013 calf)|
Beef - That's what's for dinner!
Just think of all of the food products that are available to you in one place...at your local grocery store...those products didn't get there by chance or by magic. A lot of sweat, joy, heartbreak and tears goes into each of those products by farmers and ranchers all across our nation...and the world.
You gotta watch Ranching Awesome!!

Say THANK YOU to a farmer or rancher today...celebrate with us National Agriculture Day!
