Ag Tag program has best year in history

The state Ag Tag program had its best year in history this year.

Kentucky farmers donated nearly $736,000 to the Ag Tag Program this year, the largest amount donated in a single year since the program began.

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.

That money goes into a fund divided equally among Kentucky 4-H, Kentucky FFA, and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. 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.
