Events during National Ag Day are meant to convey the importance and value of agriculture in our daily lives. People involved in agriculture advocate for the industry every day, but National Ag day is a special day to but the business of feeding the world front and center.

Thousands of people across the United States are doing their part to produce food, fiber, and renewable resources for our ever-growing world. Producers put in early mornings and late nights doing what they love. Farmers are working in all sorts of weather conditions to take care of their animals and tend to their crops. The men and women in agriculture are doing their part to feed our world population of seven billion people. This is all put into perspective and summarized as the 2014 National Ag Day theme is entitled “Agriculture: 365 Sunrises and 7 Billion Mouths to Feed.” Below are photos of sunrises and sunsets that showcase Nebraska’s agriculture and beautiful landscapes.
