5 ways every Australian can get involved on AgDay

The countdown is on, with only four days before Australia celebrates its first ever AgDay. There are lots of ways to join in the action - here are our Top 5...

1. Host an Event

Who doesn’t like a sausage sizzle? Especially when the sausages are made from Aussie meat and the bread from homegrown wheat. You may like to host an AgDay BBQ? Already we know about many events happening around the country to celebrate AgDay. You might be close by so take a look here to find an event near you.

How you mark the day is up to you but be sure to take a photo and join the national conversation by sharing your celebrations on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #AgDay and @OzFarmers

2. Take the Quiz

On Tuesday, we will be launching the National AgDay quiz to test Australia's farming know-how. Think you have what it takes to be a master farmer? You'll find out here on AgDay.

This is a fun, interactive quiz you can do with your family and friends. No matter where you live, take the test and share your results on social media to lay down the challenge to your friends!.

3. Share a Farm Fact

Australian agriculture is a success story which often goes untold.

Did you know last year Australian farms surpassed $60 billion in farm gate income? Or that agriculture supports 1.6 million jobs across the supply chain?

To tell the impressive story that is Australian agriculture, the National Farmers' Federation's (NFF) has released its updated Food, Fibre & Forestry Facts publication.

Visit the AgDay website to find fact cards about Australian agriculture you can share on social media. Be sure to use the hashtag #AgDay so Australia can follow along!

4. Share the AgDay video

It's a surprise for now but on AgDay, the NFF will be launching a video to share our industry's story with the nation.

This video highlights the achievements of Australian agriculture across the many sectors which come together to make this the fastest growing industry.

The video features NFF President Fiona Simson, and many others from various sectors who all have a hand in agriculture's success.

Help share our story on Ag Day by promoting the video far and wide. The footage will be available on Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday, 21 November so please be sure to share this important message via #AgDay.

5. Help us get #AgDay trending

What does that mean? On Tuesday, 21 November, help us to make #AgDay the most popular subject on social media.

We want the story of Australia's farm sector to be shared with as many people as possible - and you can play a role in getting the word out.

You might like to share a picture of the farm produce you're enjoying on the day - whether it's a delicious meal, or clothing made from the best natural fibres.

No matter where you are and whatever social media platform you use, help us put AgDay front and centre for all Australians.

Join the national conversation by sharing on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #AgDay.
