Oklahoma Ag Secretary Jim Reese Says Ag Day is All About Recognizing the Importance of Agriculture in Our Daily Lives

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 05:56:54 CDT

Oklahoma Ag Secretary Jim Reese Says Ag Day is All About Recognizing the Importance of Agriculture in Our Daily Lives The National Ag Day celebration was happening on Tuesday, March 15th, and the Oklahoma Secretary of Agriculture, Jim Reese, says it is appropriate that the United States pause each spring and celebrate agriculture because the results of the labor of farmers and ranchers "is a basic need for survival- you don't live without food, air and water."


Reese, in talking with Radio Oklahoma Network Farm Director Ron Hays at the 2016 Oklahoma Youth Expo, says that he is glad that state lawmakers and other state officials are being reminded of the importance of agriculture in the state of Oklahoma with the Legislative Showmanship being held on Ag Day.


The Secretary says that while the National Ag Day is on March 15th, Oklahoma has chosen most years to celebrate on a different day with a day at the State Capitol that includes a presence of many of the commodity groups that represent Oklahoma farmers and ranchers setting up booths in the Rotunda area, the recognition of Ag in the Classroom award winners and the announcement of the Ag Hall of Fame honoree for that year, as well as the new awards that were unveiled for the first time in 2015.


That day for the state of Oklahoma has been set for Wednesday, March 30. Reese invites the public to come to the Capitol on that day and enjoy samples of some of the great food items that Oklahoma farmers and ranchers produce, as well as have the opportunity to learn more about the vital contribution that agriculture makes for the economic well being for the state.

Reese, along with other state officials, lawmakers and other major supporters of the Youth Expo participated in annual Legislative/Celebrity Showmanship Contest.
