Mike Naig Comments Ahead of Ag Week

Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig is encouraging all Iowans to celebrate Iowa Ag Week from Sunday, March 17 through Saturday, March 23. The weeklong statewide celebration, which includes National Ag Day on March 19, will highlight the immense importance of agriculture to the state, its people, economy and way of life. The week will also highlight ways that Iowa agriculture gives back, positively impacting fellow Iowans through community involvement and volunteer service.

“Agriculture is the lifeblood of our state – it powers our economy, shapes our way of life, and feeds and fuels consumers here and around the world,” said Secretary Naig. “During Iowa Ag Week from March 17 to 23, I welcome and encourage all Iowans to celebrate Iowa agriculture’s positive impacts on our state while also giving back to our communities through volunteerism and service.”
