Today is Norman Borlaug’s birthday, he was revolutionary in food production. If you are not familiar with his story, check out a blog post I wrote one year ago.
This week is National Agriculture week, and today (March 25) is National Ag Day! For those of us in agriculture, this is our week to geek out if you will. I believe agriculture is important enough to be celebrated daily, but since it is not, here are some fun facts for you…
The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) is responsible for conducting the National Ag Day annually as a day to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture. Both the ACA and National Ag Day were founded in 1973! There are four key values, they believe every American should:
– 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.
– Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, and fiber industry.
