Time For National Ag Day

As we enter ag week let's look at the schedule for National Ag Day in the nation's Capitol.

Things will start off with an Agriculture Appreciation Reception hosted by Agri-Pulse this evening that features musical artist Michael Peterson. Then tomorrow morning we'll have the National Ag Day Coffee followed by the National Ag Day Mix-and-Mingle Luncheon. At the luncheon we'll have approximately 100 student delegates from FFA, 4-H, AFA and The Consortium in attendance, along with Outstanding Farmer of the Year honorees. Finally we'll have the National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner, hosted by the Agriculture Council of America.

It's going to be a great day of celebration for American Agriculture. If you're tweeting or just want to follow the Twitter stream then use the hash tag, #natlagday.
