Celebrate National Ag Day + Agriculture Industry Construction Projects
Today is National Ag Day, a day to recognize, celebrate and support American agriculture. The Agriculture Council of America is a nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of agriculture's role in society. The ACA organizes National Ag Day, and the theme for National Ag Day 2021 is "Food Brings Everyone to the Table."
To truly understand the value of agriculture in our daily lives, we need to identify everything affected. Because when you think about it, agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear. Plus, fiber and renewable resource production contribute to countless industries connected to fuel and other bioproducts, elevating agriculture to an increasingly significant role in maintaining a strong economy filled with safe, affordable products.
We're celebrating Ag Day by reflecting on a few projects for clients who know more than their fair share about American agriculture's importance. Please join us by increasing your awareness of agriculture's role in our daily lives and celebrating the abundance of food, fiber and renewable resources produced in the United States.
