Farmers can support youth with ag tag donations

GLASGOW — A donation program attached to farm license plates gives Kentucky farmers an opportunity to support local youth ventures in agriculture, and the commissioner of agriculture is traveling the state to make sure everyone knows.

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.

Donations made through the ag tag program are split evenly three ways, to fund 4-H, FFA and Kentucky Proud. The money is a donation and it is not required, but Comer encouraged farmers to take advantage of the opportunity in order to support local youth, who are so important to the future of agriculture in Barren County and Kentucky.

“These people have passion, they want to be involved in agriculture and they’re proud to be from rural communities,”
