Today marks the 45th National Ag Day.
American agriculture is the foundation of our country. It’s the backbone of a healthy and prosperous nation that’s made possible by the hard work of America’s farmers and ranchers.
At CHS, we are proud to support National Ag Day and promote the agricultural industry today and every day. Hear from Sarah Gallo, Government Affairs Director for CHS on how your voice is important to the industry.
Your Voice is Important and People are Listening., by Sara Gallo
