Community Focus - National Ag Literacy Week


County News

  • March 21, 2013

Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) joins farming organizations across the country on March 19 to celebrate National Agriculture Day. This date is set aside annually to highlight the many ways America¹s food system improves the quality of life for everyone. Farmers in the United States continue to produce the safest, most abundant and lowest-cost food supply of any nation in the world. Because agriculture also provides components of almost everything people eat, use and wear on a daily basis ­ and is increasingly contributing to consumer demand for alternative fuels and other bio-products ­ organizers of the National Ag Day program believe that every American should: understand how food, fiber and renewable resource products are produced value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food, fiber and renewable resource industries.
