The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is encouraging all farmers and agriculturists to share what they do and why they do it on National Ag Day, March 25. They also encourage sharing what makes them proud of Wisconsin agriculture by using #WIAgProud via social media.
National Ag Day, organized by the Agriculture Council of America, is designated to help educate the world how food is grown, the role it plays in Americans' lives and the U.S. economy and to highlight the various careers it involves.
"What better time to share your involvement with agriculture than National Ag Day?" Amy Manske, Wisconsin Farm Bureau's communications coordinator said. "Whether you grow, process, promote, or simply eat what comes from Wisconsin farms, we hope you will take 30 seconds to share your connection to Wisconsin agriculture."
The hashtag that social media users should use is #WIAgProud. By tagging Facebook posts and tweets on Twitter with the hashtag the Farm Bureau will be able to find and repost them.
"If you are proud of your farm, your family, your job or your state, we hope you will take part in Wisconsin's celebration of National Ag Day. Whether you start a conversation at the grocery store or update your Facebook status in appreciation, we each need to advocate for agriculture."
