Gipson and MDAC Celebrate National Ag Day

Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson and the Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce on Tuesday, March 21 celebrated National Ag Day at the Mississippi State Capitol, featuring two cow milking contests. Gov. Tate Reeves signed a proclamation declaring Ag Day in the state of Mississippi.

“We celebrate National Ag Day and Ag Day in Mississippi today to shine a light on the truth that all of our food comes from the farm,” said Gipson. “It’s important that we support our local farmers. We have fewer farmers today than ever before, but agriculture remains strong and is Mississippi’s largest industry. Every meal that we enjoy began on a farm.”
