Today is National Ag Day!
A time to reflect on all the contributions farmers make to our daily lives. From the food on our dinner tables, to the wide open spaces, to the economic revenue they provide our rural communities – farmers are indeed significant and vital to our everyday well-being and the quality of life we have come to enjoy.
Dairy farmers are one segment of New York’s diverse agriculture industry. They are quiet and dedicated members of their community, who take immense pride in continuing their family’s heritage by producing a quality product. By caring for their land, their animals and their employees, dairy farmers provide a quality and wholesome lifestyle for their families and their neighbors. So please raise a tall, cold glass of milk and join us in celebrating all that dairy farmers do for us today, on National Ag Day, but everyday.
