Indiana celebrates National Ag Day


Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has declared March 19th Ag Day in the state.

State Department of Agriculture Director Don Lamb tells Brownfield Indiana is home to more than 94,000 farmers.

“When you put agriculture and natural resources together, it touches every Hoosier’s life and it’s really, really rewarding for me to think about celebrating National Ag week when you put it in that kind of perspective,” he says. “I’m just very proud of agriculture in Indiana.”

Lamb says the state’s industry is valued at over $18 billion in agricultural production, the ninth largest in the country.
