The 40th Anniversary of National Agriculture Day (which this year is Tuesday, March 19) is a day worthy of celebration. In correspondence with this celebration, March 17-23rd has been made into National Agriculture Week working to increase the public awareness of agriculture's vital role in our society.
In addition, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has declared March 17-23 as Minnesota Ag Week. This is an exciting announcement, as Nobles County has earned the placement of one of the top ranking Minnesota counties in agriculture production.
Tune in this Thursday as ag broadcaster Sonja Langseth catches up with the Agriculture Council of America (ACA) Chairman Barry Nelson to discuss National Ag Day/Week along with its events and reason for the celebration.
