At Thursday night’s Agriculture Appreciation Dinner, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer said he’s going to “go on the offensive” and is going to ask his employees at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to do the same.

“We need to go on the offensive and tell about the good things we’re doing in agriculture and the good things that our farmers do, that we have the safest and healthiest food supply in the world, that we have the best and most progressive farmers in the world right here in Kentucky,” Comer said.

Comer, who has been in office for roughly eight weeks, was the featured speaker at the dinner, and said he’s traveling across the state to encourage farmers to be proactive about what he says is the greatest occupation. He also said that when after he filed to run in November 2010, his very first stop was in Trigg County.

Comer outlined the three goals of this administration and encouraged farmers to check “yes” when they renew their farm license tags, which will result in a $10 donation that will be split between 4-H, Future Farmers of America and the Kentucky Proud Program.
