Ag Day turns 50

As the official start of spring approaches on March 21, so does the 50th anniversary of National Agriculture Day, which will also be celebrated that day. The theme for the 2023 event is “Growing a Climate for Tomorrow.”

The first Ag Day celebration was organized in 1973 by the Agriculture Council of America, a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community. With farm and ranch families making up less than 2% of the U.S. population, National Ag Day is designed to encourage all Americans 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
  • Consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry

Many agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations are expected to participate in this year’s Ag Day celebrations across the country. Visit for more information.
