Happy National Ag Day! | by Kelly Cox

Happy National Ag Day, everyone!  Today we celebrate agriculture - what it provides to each individual and how it contributes to the larger picture of life.

National Ag Day was founded in 1973 by the Agriculture Council of America (ACA), and the program focuses on bringing public awareness to agriculture - from farm to fork.  Agriculture is incredibly important!  It holds a substantial place in our society, providing food and fiber to each household.

Valley Irrigation invites you to help celebrate National Ag Day by posting a "thank you" note to a special farmer in your life.  To do this, visit the Valley Irrigation Facebook page and post away! Or, Tweet your "thank you" by using "MT: @ValleyPivots."
