National Ag Day 2019 is Thursday, March 14

National Ag Day falls during National Ag Week, March 10-16. Agriculture: Food for Life is the theme of this year’s celebration. In Kansas we take the celebration a step further to share about agriculture all month long!

 

Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis. But too few people truly understand this contribution. This is particularly the case in our schools, where students may only be exposed to agriculture if they enroll in related vocational training.

 

Ag Day is about recognizing - and celebrating - the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. Every year, producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America join together to recognize the contributions of agriculture.

Membership Dues

 The breakdown of your annual membership dues ($51.00) is as follows:  $5.00 to AFBF  $23.50 to KFB  $0.50 to AD&D (Accidental Death and Dismemberment policy) and the remaining $22.00 stays in the county.
