FSA supports National Ag Day

Published 10:39am Wednesday, March 20, 2013

The Alabama Farm Service Agency (FSA) suggests that we all take a moment in these turbulent fiscal times to celebrate agriculture and honor our hard-working farmers and ranchers in Alabama.  Susan L. Minor announ-ced that March 19 was National Ag Day and this year’s theme is “Gener-ations Nourshing Genera-tions.”

Today each American farmer produces enough food to feed more than 144 people, a dramatic increase from the 25 people a farmer sustained in 1960.

These increased efficiencies demonstrate that American Agriculture is producing more– and doing it better than ever before. AgDay is a project of the Agriculture Council of America.
