On this day, we celebrate agriculture's abundance ... and the subsidies that determine what is grown. As this cartoon, which is featured in Eat Drink Vote, reminds us, the small farmer is being overshadowed by big agricultural companies that influence how government subsidies are allocated.
Here's a link to the day's events that have been organized by the group behind Ag Day - The Agriculture Council of America. Notice anything about the events? Yep - they are all in Washington, D.C. Not many farmers there. Guess that the farmers will have to celebrate elsewhere.
