It's National Agriculture Week. It's a time to remind ourselves just how important agriculture is to all of us.
The website www.agday.org is full of interesting and important facts about agriculture including information about ag careers:
"The most obvious careers are directly related to the farm or ranch. But did you know that only 10 percent of Americans are involved in traditional farming? If that is the case, then what other careers comprise the agricultural field? There are approximately 22 million people who work in agriculture related fields. Unlike agriculture of our grandparents' day, today's agriculture offers over 200 rewarding and challenging careers."
