Ag Day recognizes hard work of industry pros
In recognition of National Ag Day on March 15, 2011, Michael R. Sullivan , Executive Director for the USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Mississippi, thanked farmers, ranchers and others involved in agriculture for their hard work and commitment to the industry.
“Agriculture is an important part of our daily lives and is often taken for granted, but in these uncertain times, it should be remembered that American Agriculture is not only important for obvious reasons - food, clothing and shelter, but, the industry also plays an important part in homeland security,” said Sullivan.
Sullivan refers to American Agriculture as, “Homegrown Security.”
