LINCOLN, Neb. — Without the work of the farmers in Nebraska and across the country, we wouldn’t have the food, fuel and fiber relied on every day. That’s why the Nebraska Corn Board is proud to recognize the hard work and resilience of those who work in agriculture this National Ag Day.
Agriculture plays a vital role in our state. We’re proud to have national rankings in all areas of production including first in white corn production, second in ethanol production and third in corn production. Our farmers are stewards of the land, and all the production is with careful consideration of the soil and land around them.
The theme for National Ag Day 2023 is “Growing a Climate for Tomorrow” to highlight the sustainable innovation that farmers use to grow more with less. Whether its Nebraska corn farmers producing five times more corn on 20 percent less land or utilizing agronomic, genetic and precision innovations, National Ag Day recognizes the work of those in the industry.
“We are pleased to celebrate and thank those who work in agriculture,” says Kelly Brunkhorst, Executive Director of the Nebraska Corn Board. “Whether it is farmers, seed salesmen, agronomists, economists, or implement mechanics, the agricultural industry keeps Nebraska moving forward.”
We invite you to celebrate with us on Tuesday, March 21. National Ag Day encourages an understanding of how food and fiber products are produced, appreciate the essential role agriculture plays in our society, acknowledge career opportunities within ag and finally to acknowledges the important work of those in agriculture across our country!
The Nebraska Corn Board is funded through a producer checkoff investment of ½-cent-per-bushelcheckoff on all corn marketed in the state and is managed by nine farmer directors. The mission of the Nebraska Corn Board is to promote the value of corn by creating opportunities.
