National Ag Day celebrates American agriculture and the important role growers play.
Across the country, the day's events include educating Americans on how food, fuel and fiber products are produced.
Don Clark, Thomas County Ag Agent, says, "I think it's good to call attention to the farmers and the work they do. Farming and producing these commodities these days is very challenging."
Coordinated by the Agricultural Council of America, National Ag Day was first celebrated in 1973.
