PRESS RELEASE - The American Forage and Grassland Council (AFGC) is celebrating National Forage Week with the agricultural community June 17-23, 2018. Slightly less than 2 percent of the total U.S. population lives on a farm, making it more difficult for the general public to relate to farming and the accompanying benefits and challenges. As the general public moves further away from its agrarian heritage and the rural lifestyle, AFGC strives to bring farming and forages into greater public awareness with National Forage Week, now in its fourth year of celebration....full press release
