Donation to ‘Ag Tag’ fund helps agriculture youth, farm families

Every year, when farmers renew their farm license plates, or “ag tags,” they have the opportunity to make a $10 donation.

That money goes into a fund divided equally among Kentucky 4-H, Kentucky FFA, and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) to support Kentucky’s agriculture youth and other organizations and programs benefiting Kentucky farm families.

Last year, Kentucky farmers donated $606,223.11. From that total, each group received $202,074.37 to invest back into communities for youth development and promotional programs.

The record for Ag Tag collections in a single year is $731,627, which was set in 2021.
