National Ag Day!


Happy National Ag Day today on March 18th!  Actually, this whole week we celebrate National Ag Week in which we recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture.  We’re thankful for all our farmers and ranchers and all involved in the ag industry for providing a safe, affordable, and healthy food supply!

There are several celebrations this time of year for Ag Week and Ag Day.  Raising Nebraska in Grand Island is hosting an Ag Day Open House on Saturday, March 21, 2015 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.  This is a free event open for the public.

Guests will enjoy interactive engagement stations that allow participants to learn more about agriculture through an activity, getting their questions answered, and feeling excited about Nebraska agriculture.  From science and innovation, to community and culture, and even the global economy, Nebraska’s agricultural experience touches everyone. Through this incredible 25,000-foot interactive exhibit, you actually become part of it – in ways you never imagined and that you’ll never forget.  Raising Nebraska is located in the Nebraska Building on the Nebraska State Fairgrounds at 501 E Fonner Park Rd, Grand Island, NE 68801.  For more information on Raising Nebraska, visit www.raisingnebraska.net.
