Celebrating Kansas Farmers and Ranchers on National Agriculture Day

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback and leaders of the Kansas Agriculture industry gathered in the Kansas State Capital to recognize the importance of agriculture in our everyday lives and to express gratitude for the donations to the 2014 Neighbor to Neighbor statewide food drive.

Gov. Brownback noted that agriculture is the largest driver of the Kansas economy, contributing more than $35 billion dollars, or 25 percent of the state’s economy. "Kansas farm and ranch families work tirelessly day after day to feed their fellow Kansans and others around the world," Gov. Brownback said. "I am proud to celebrate farm and ranch families today, on National Agriculture Day, thank you for your diligent hard work."

The Agricultural Business Council of Kansas City is an association that advocates growth and awareness of the food, fiber, agri-science and related industries in the Kansas City region. 

 

Established in late 2003, the Council's mission is to enhance greater understanding about this important industry by joining together Kansas and Missouri agricultural organizations, agribusinesses and other key leaders. This alliance includes more than 250 individuals, businesses and organizations associated with the extensive agricultural and food industry.

 

The Council has proved to be a success as a networking opportunity and a forum to hear from government officials and industry executives.  The Council also seeks to be an advocate for agriculture and agricultural economic growth in this region.
