Farmers and ranchers are the backbone of America. They grow food to feed us, fiber to clothe us and fuel to run our homes and cars. Their hard work and dedication provide economic stability across the nation – stability that supports rural economies and creates much-needed jobs in local communities. No matter who we are, where we live or what we do, we all have a reason every day to celebrate and thank our farmers.
March 14 is designated as National Ag Day. Today and every day, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency and Natural Resources Conservation Service in Texas join fellow agencies, non-profits, private industries, and consumers in thanking our agricultural producers for their contributions to our nation and beyond.
On behalf of USDA, we would like to thank our farmers for feeding our nation and the world. To our farmers and ranchers: We are here to support you every step of the way.
