2008 Ag Day Planning Guide

2008 National Ag Day materials are now available! Because of your role in American agriculture, you know just how important our industry is to the world. Agriculture is responsible for providing food, fiber and shelter; the very essentials of life. But too few people recognize this vital contribution.

That's what National Ag Day is all about, reminding Americans of the role of agriculture in their daily lives. Widespread national awareness efforts are planned to call attention to Ag Day 2008, but we need your help to bring this message to all of our communities!

To help you get the word out in your community, we are again providing the Ag Day Planning Guide. The 2008 Planning Guide contains helpful tools and tips to help make the most of this important celebration. Inside the Guide, you'll find a number of helpful tools, such as: Fun and easy ideas for Ag Day events; tips from
