Farmer Co-ops Celebrate Agriculture's Resilience on National Ag Day

Tue, 23 Mar 2021 09:43:55 CDT

Farmer Co-ops Celebrate Agriculture's Resilience on National Ag Day The National Council of Farmer Cooperatives (NCFC) joined with farmers, ranchers, co-ops, agribusiness and grower associations across the country in celebrating the importance of American agriculture on National Agriculture Day on Tuesday.

“National Agriculture Day is always a time to celebrate American agriculture and the amazing bounty that it provides to consumers here in the U.S. and around the world. The past year, however, highlighted in the most dramatic way possible just how important this country’s farmers, farmworkers and food sector employees truly are,” said Chuck Conner, president and CEO of NCFC. “The pandemic strained the food and agriculture supply chain, in some cases to near the breaking point; yet American agriculture has proven resilient thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of those who grow, harvest and process crops and care for farm animals.”

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
