COLLEGE STATION (MyHighPlains.com) -- USDA Texas Farm Service Agency (FSA) Executive Director Judith A. Canales, is encouraging everyone to take a moment to appreciate the hard working farmers and ranchers in Texas today for National Ag Day.

This year's theme is Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.

"We recognize the importance of agriculture and hope that the recent passage of a new Farm Bill is a sign that 2014 will be a banner year for the industry," said Canales. "There is no better way to show our support for farmers and ranchers than to begin implementing a new Farm Bill - legislation that will provide farmers, ranchers and consumers alike supportive results."
