National Ag Day

Happy First Day of Spring! I know you all are getting spring fever and getting ready to start being outside more to work on your lawns and gardens! I just want to let you know that if you have any questions, please feel free to come by the office and we can sure help with any questions!
Tomorrow, March 21st is National Agriculture Day. A day that is held near and dear to my heart because I grew up on a wheat farm in the Golden Triangle, I attended Montana State University to study Agriculture, and I have started my career as an Agricultural Extension Agent for the State of Montana, which biggest industry is Agriculture. Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use, and wear on a daily basis. Imagine where we would be without farmers and ranchers in our lives
Tomorrow will be the 44th anniversary of the creation of Ag Days by the Agriculture Council of America. National Ag Day is a nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and to remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us.
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 and acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry

So please help me celebrate National Ag Day tomorrow by remembering where your three meals a day come from and thank a farmer and a rancher because every day is National Ag Day for them!
