Farmers can support youth with ag tag donations

Barren County 4-H and FFA members and sponsors, farmers and public officials gathered at the Barren County Government Center Thursday morning to listen to Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer talk about the state’s “ag tag” program, a voluntary $10 donation farmers can make when they renew their farm license plates in February and March.
