Help cel­e­brate our farm­ers on a spe­cial day of na­tional recog­ni­tion

Central and North Rural Weekly - - NEWS -

AGFORCE is en­cour­ag­ing all Queens­lan­ders to show their sup­port for farm­ers and join in the cel­e­bra­tions for Na­tional AgDay on Tues­day, Novem­ber 21.

AgForce gen­eral pres­i­dent Grant Maud­s­ley said agriculture was a cor­ner­stone of the Queens­land econ­omy and a vi­tal con­trib­u­tor to so­ci­ety, un­der­pin­ning tens of thou­sands of jobs in re­gional com­mu­ni­ties and thou­sands more in our cities.

“Na­tional AgDay pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for all Queens­lan­ders to cel­e­brate and be proud about our con­tri­bu­tion to feed­ing and cloth­ing the world,” he said.

“The re­cent Agri­cul­tural Cen­sus re­vealed Queens­land is now the most valu­able agri­cul­tural state in the coun­try, pro­duc­ing al­most a quar­ter of Aus­tralia’s food and fi­bre.” Visit www.agday.org.au .
