Farmers Donate Large Amount to Ag Tag

Kentucky farmers donated $613,246.37 to the Ag Tag Program in the 2019 fiscal year which ended June 30, the second-highest total in the history of the program, according to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

The voluntary donations are divided equally among Kentucky 4-H, Kentucky FFA, and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture.

The 2019 total was surpassed only by the $629,865.43 donated in fiscal year 2017.

Kentucky motorists who buy or renew farm vehicle license plates, or “ag tags,” may make a voluntary donation of up to $10 to the Ag Tag Fund. Half of the 4-H and FFA funds go back to the county where the tag is purchased, where both organizations use the funds to support local programming, awards, and scholarships.
