Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On National Ag Day
Tuesday, March 24, 2020
Every American is facing the uncertainty that the new coronavirus has brought to our country.
Our daily lives have transformed and grocery stores have been one of the few businesses that need to stay open.
While it may shock some living in large cities, food does not come from the grocery store.
Today is National Ag Day and I know American farmers and ranchers are up for the challenge of producing food to fill the shelves of every grocery store and the fridges and cupboards of American households.
If you ate today, thank a farmer.
