Saskatchewan people have a long history of pulling together when times are tough, especially in the agriculture community. This year, many farmers and ranchers are facing drought, low crop yields and extreme shortages of feed and water for livestock, and it might seem out of place to engage in a #CelebrateAg campaign.
But we have much to celebrate: the resiliency and community of our industry through thick and thin. The determination to place the care of our land and our animals first. The desire to grow safe, affordable and wholesome food and share it with the world. The drive to develop innovative solutions to challenges like drought, climate change, food waste, and others.
This October, join with us to #CelebrateAg in Saskatchewan. Tag your posts with #CelebrateAg and show your support for the hardworking people who grow food — and all those who love to eat it!
Agriculture Month is proclaimed annually by the Government of Saskatchewan. Each October, the industry works together to tell their food story through campaigns, events and programming. Through these interactions, we hope to help people better understand how Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers raise their animals and grow their crops, while engaging in authentic conversations with people from around the province.
