Happy 50th Anniversary to National Ag Day

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack celebrated the 50th anniversary of National Agriculture Day Tuesday at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but he said he wasn’t really that interested in celebrating it.

“Why today? Why just one day? Why not every day?” asked Vilsack. “I think we let the country get off the hook a little easy by having only one day. We ought to recognize farmers, ranchers and producers and what they do for this country every single day.”
