The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is encouraging the agriculture community to celebrate National Ag Day on March 15.
Wisconsin Farm Bureau is bringing back the #WIAgProud campaign for the third year to encourage all farmers and agriculturists to share what they do and why they do it on social media. They encourage sharing what makes you proud of Wisconsin agriculture by using #WIAgProud on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
“Whether you grow, process, promote, or simply eat what comes from Wisconsin farms, we hope you will take time to share your connection to Wisconsin agriculture on March 15,” said Amy Eckelberg, Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Director of Communications.
By tagging your social media posts with the hashtag #WIAgProud, the Farm Bureau will be able to find and repost them. Five randomly selected people who use #WIAgProud will receive food vouchers donated by Culver’s.
“What better time to share your involvement with agriculture than National Ag Day?” Eckelberg said.
