Farmer Co-ops Celebrate National Ag Day

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 10:31:14 CDT


The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) joins farmers and other agricultural associations across the country to celebrate the importance of American agriculture during the 40th National Agriculture Day on March 19.    


“National Ag Day gives us an amazing opportunity to showcase agriculture and share the true success story that we see as we look out across rural America today,” said Chuck Conner, president and CEO of NCFC. “Agriculture continues to be a bright spot in the U.S. economy and farmer-owned cooperatives are at the core of that success.”


“In addition to providing the world with a safe, affordable and abundant food, fiber and fuel supply, American farmers, ranchers and their co-ops play an important role in strengthening the economy, providing jobs and improving life in local communities,” Conner continued.


National Ag Day is organized by the Agriculture Council of America and celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. ACA is 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. Founded in 1973, National Ag Day 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.

*         Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.
