Let us all celebrate National Ag Day Tuesday, March 21, 2017

National Ag Day is organized by the Agriculture Council of America. ACA is a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community, dedicating its efforts to increasing the public's awareness of agriculture's role in modern society.

The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
  • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.





On Saturday, October 24th, we will be hosting The "Next Crop" RAM Test Drive Event to benefit Dundee FFA Chapter. Tom Stahl the chapter director also teaches at Dundee & Milan High Schools.  Please join us from 9am - 4pm and help us donate to the next generation of American farmers!

For every test-drive $20 will be donated to this important organization.  We are hoping for at least 100 Ram test-drives so we may donate $2,000!



FFA Breaks Records

With global needs to fight hunger and prepare for the expected population growth, the industry of agriculture needs educated, skilled and passionate people dedicated to sustainability. The National FFA Organization is answering this need, as the record growth of the organization demonstrates.

FFA membership now stands at 629,367 students, up from 610,240 in 2014, an increase of three percent. The number of chapters grew from 7,665 in 2014 to 7,757 in 2015. The top five membership states are Texas, California, Georgia, Oklahoma and Missouri. Interest in FFA and agricultural education continues to grow, as membership has increased more than 20 percent since 2009-10.

"FFA, through agricultural education, is preparing our youth to ensure the security of our country's food, fiber and natural resources for years to come," said National FFA Organization CEO Dwight Armstrong, Ph.D. "Through real-world experiences, the nation's agricultural educators are helping students develop the technical knowledge, skills and problem-solving capabilities to be the industry's leaders of tomorrow. FFA continues to grow leaders, build communities and strengthen agriculture."

Student membership was not the only thing that grew in 2015. National FFA Alumni membership also continued to grow, with 62,705 members this year, growing from 57,832 in 2014. FFA alumni play an important role in keeping agricultural education and FFA programs in local schools by providing both volunteers and financial support to local teachers.

Nash Icon 98.3 Radio and Monroe Superstore FEED THE FARMERS
Every Thursday afternoon, starting September 3rd through October 1st, 2015, 98.3 Nash Icon & the Monroe Superstore will travel and feed 2 different farmer locations and their crew in SE Michigan.  We will deliver lunch, hang out, take pictures, and THANK THE FARMERS THAT WORK SO HARD TO FEED ALL OF US!

Listeners can go to 983nashicon.com and submit their special farmers, locations, contact information on the "Feed the Farmers" tab.

Some of the farms we have visited:

Whether it's cheese, milk, ice cream or yogurt, dairy products are a staple in the diets of Americans and people all over the world. During National Dairy Month each June, we recognize our nation's dairy producers and processors for making sure that we can enjoy quality dairy products.
 
According to the International Dairy Foods Association, National Dairy Month started out as National Milk Month in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk. It was initially created to stabilize the dairy demand when production was at a surplus, but has now developed into an annual tradition that celebrates the contributions the dairy industry has made to the world.  Now, many states have special events and observances in honor of dairy farmers and the industry.

The dairy industry is an important economic engine in America.  The farm value of milk production is second only to beef among livestock industries and is equal to corn. Milk is produced in all 50 states, and dairy farms are overwhelmingly family-managed.
Always true stewards of the land, dairy farmers have made tremendous strides when it comes to sustainability. In the past 63 years, the industry reduced its carbon footprint by 63 percent. This amazing statistic is a testament to the integrity of the nation's dairies, most of which are family-owned and well-connected to the communities around them.

So the next time you eat a cheese sandwich, drink a glass of cold milk, enjoy an ice cream cone or grab a cup of yogurt, think of the dairy farmers who make it all possible.  And no matter where your dairy comes from, remember that while dairy farming is a labor of love, there's no doubt it is hard labor - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 


2015 National Ag Day
Agriculture Council of America Announces
2015 National Ag Day Date


The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) will host National Agriculture Day on March 18, 2015. This will mark the 42nd anniversary of National Ag Day which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country. The theme for National Ag Day is "Agriculture: Sustaining Future Generations."

On March 18, 2014. The ACA will host major events in the nation's capital including the Mix-and-Mingle Luncheon and the National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner. Additionally, the ACA will bring approximately 100 college students to Washington to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill.

These events honor National Agriculture Day and mark a nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. A number of producers, agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.

National Ag Day is organized by the Agriculture Council of America. ACA is a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community, dedicating its efforts to increasing the public's awareness of agriculture's role in modern society.

The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
  • Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.
In addition to the events in Washington, DC on March 18, the ACA will once again feature the Ag Day Essay Contest as well as the 2015 Ag Day Poster Art Contest.


National Ag Day FAQ's

What Is Ag Day?
It's a day to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture. Every year, producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies and countless others across America join together to recognize the contributions of agriculture.

When Is Ag Day?
Ag Day is celebrated on March 18, 2015. National Ag Day falls during National Ag Week, March 15-21, 2015.

Who Hosts Ag Day?
The Agriculture Council of America hosts the campaign on a national level. However, the awareness efforts in communities across America are as influential - if not more - than the broad-scale effort. Again this year, the Ag Day Planning Guide has been created to help communities and organizations more effectively host Ag Day events.

What Is Ag Day All About?
Ag Day is about recognizing - and celebrating - the contribution of agriculture in our everyday lives. The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:
  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced.
  • Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.
  • Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
Why Celebrate Agriculture?
Agriculture provides almost everything we eat, use and wear on a daily basis. But too few people truly understand this contribution. This is particularly the case in our schools, where students may only be exposed to agriculture if they enroll in related vocational training.
By building awareness, the Agriculture Council of America is encouraging young people to consider career opportunities in agriculture.
Each American farmer feeds more than 144 people ... a dramatic increase from 25 people in the 1960s. Quite simply, American agriculture is doing more - and doing it better. As the world population soars, there is an even greater demand for the food and fiber produced in the United States.

What Can I Do to Help?
Put simply, get involved! Your participation in Ag Day is critical in helping us spread this positive message about agriculture. If you are interested in planning an event, download your Planning Guide today. Of course, there are other ways you can lend your support, including sending a letter to your local newspaper, calling your Congressional representatives or simply sharing information about agriculture with youngsters in your community.

Help us celebrate President's Day February 16th, George Washington's Birthday February 22nd, and National Future Farmers of America Week, February 21st - 28th!

 
  
 
In 1948 the first FFA Week was celebrated during George Washington's birthday to recognize his pioneering contributions to American agriculture.

George Washington is considered one of the foremost founding fathers for many of the roles he played in the establishment of our nation:  commander of the Continental Army, president of the Constitutional Convention, and America's first president.  But in addition to these more well-known accomplishments, Washington considered himself first and foremost a farmer.  So it's appropriate that we salute the man recognized by the National FFA Organization as the pioneer of American agriculture.
 
Throughout his life, George Washington spent time studying and establishing farming methods.  He wrote, "I know of no pursuit in which more real and important services can be rendered to any country than by improving its agriculture, its breed of useful animals, and other branches of a husbandman's cares."  He was happiest when conducting agricultural experiments on his plantation farm at Mt. Vernon.


The National FFA Organization is an American youth organization, specifically a career and technical student organization, based on middle and high school classes that promote and support agricultural education. Founded: 1928

And on the 8th day God looked down on his planned paradise and said, "I need a caretaker!" So, God made a farmer!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MONROE SUPERSTORE BECOMES AREA'S ONLY CERTIFIED RAM AGRICULTURAL DEALERSHIP
MONROE, MI, July 28, 2014 - When Ram trucks celebrated America's farm and ranch families with a two minute commercial featuring Paul Harvey during the 2013 Super Bowl, they created a relationship with those families like no other truck maker ever had.
Today, Ram dealers are proud to announce the next generation of that relationship. Endorsed by the National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization, Ram welcomes Monroe Superstore to the ranks of Ram Certified Agriculture Dealerships. A first of its kind in the truck industry, this certification lets farm and ranch families know staff at this dealership understands the uniqueness of their business. It also signals the dealerships commitment to the timing of cherry harvest, calving season and third cutting of hay by adjusting parts of its operations to accommodate the unique demands of each commodity, and every season.
To become a Certified Agriculture Dealership, Monroe Superstore was required to select three team members to successfully complete a curriculum prepared by its agriculture partners. Your Certified Agriculture Specialists at Monroe Superstore are: Greg Bondy, Glenda Cotton and Jeremy Jennings.
With the initial curriculum complete, the Monroe Superstore team will now participate in a continuing education effort that synchronizes their learning with everything important to Michigan agriculture as it happens. Ongoing education, combined with what Certified Agriculture Specialists learned through the initial curriculum, will allow the dealership to become a real-time partner with area agriculture by pro-actively anticipating and meeting the changing demands of its family farm customers.
The Certified Agriculture Dealership designation is important to the areas non-farm truck buyers. Agriculture is widely known for battle testing equipment under the toughest of conditions. Experts at Monroe Ram, and the farms they support, will be able to provide buyers of any influence first-hand knowledge of the products capabilities based on their own experiences on the farm.
Monroe Superstore Ag Specialist Greg Bondy sums it up best; "Appreciation for agriculture's needs has set deep roots with this dealership, and the Ram brand. The RamCAD program was built with input from educational experts, agriculture experts, family farmers & ranchers so our dealership can offer the industry something more-a partnership that understands, and adjusts to those needs at every level."
