Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles encourages the state’s drivers to help future farmer’s through special license plates.
He stopped in Owensboro and Henderson to promote the state’s Ag-Tag Program.
People can donate up to $10 to the state’s 4-H and Future Farmers of America Programs.
The program raised $600,000 last year.
“What we’ve seen during low commodity prices, farmers are very generous towards supporting these organizations, especially here in Kentucky. We think that $600,000 a year is a major shot in the arm, especially during a period of budget cuts across not only state government, but also the local levels.”
The program has raised more than $1.8 million in the past three years.
