To help commemorate National Ag Day farmers and ranchers around the country are celebrating on social media.

National Agriculture Day was organized by a various agriculture associations and business through the Agriculture Council of America and is celebrating its 46th anniversary.

To mark the occasion and thank farmers and ranchers, President Trump made a proclamation declaring March 14, 2019, as National Agriculture Day.

In his proclamation Trump says, “I encourage all Americans to observe this day by recognizing the preeminent role that agriculture plays in our daily lives, acknowledging agriculture’s continuing importance to rural America and our country’s economy, and expressing our deep appreciation of farmers, growers, ranchers, producers, national forest system stewards, private agricultural stewards, and those who work in the agriculture sector across the nation.”

On National Ag Day farmers and ranchers used #NationalAgDay to share facts about agriculture and photos from their farms. Some shared videos and others took selfies around their operations.

Here are a few of the images we found on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook that were shared:
