Ag Day highlights economic value
Hosted in partnership with California Women for Agriculture and the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom, Ag Day brings farmers and ranchers together with legislators, government leaders and the public to inform and educate about the value of agriculture to California's economic landscape.
Ag Day 2018, held March 20 at the Capital, offered equipment dealers an opportunity to demonstrate the tools available to consumers to diagnose and repair their equipment. Dealers used the day to discuss the negative impacts of right-to-repair legislation introduced this session in California. John Deere and Valley Truck & Tractor were on hand with two 6R tractors to show how diagnostics tools empower consumers.
