Agriculture Day

NASHVILLE, TN – A governor’s proclamation is recognizing the contributions of farmers and forestland owners as part of national and state Ag Day activities. On March 22, state leaders and citizens will celebrate Agriculture Day in Tennessee with “Ag Day on the Hill.”

My daughter is very interested in Agriculture, as she is fascinated with cattle. She wants to be a vet and specialize in cattle. I figured I would share this press release from the state of Tennessee because of that.

Not to mention where I live is a big agriculture area too. My Sunday School Teacher, Adam Martin, Martin Beef. Mr. Martin also teachers at Jefferson County High School some of the Ag Classes. Plus, another deacon of ours at the church, Paul Brooks, owns his own Farm Equipment store.

I am also surrounded by many farms and corn mazes too where I live. So I wanted to share with you, my readers that the State of Tennessee now recognizes a day for these people involved in the Agriculture industry with Agriculture Day.

TENNESSEE LAWMAKERS TO CELEBRATE AGRICULTURE DAY

Farm animals and a variety of agricultural equipment will be on display at the entrance to the Legislative Plaza on 6th Avenue in Nashville. Representatives from agricultural organizations and agencies will be available to discuss programs and opportunities for those interested in farming and forestry in Tennessee.

At 10 a.m., lawmakers will compete in a corn shelling contest. The Farm and Forest Families of Tennessee organization will present a check to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee in honor of contest participants.

The day’s activities will also include a sweet potato bagging project to benefit the Society of St. Andrew and a silent auction to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and the Ag in the Classroom program.
