Third Annual Ag Day Welcomes Thousands of Football Fans

September 2023

Florida Farm Bureau Federation welcomed thousands of football fans to the third annual Home Field AGvantage tailgate at the Sept. 9 Florida State University vs. Southern Miss football game. The tailgate celebrated the role agriculture plays in football and how everyone contributes to the industry.

The Home Field AGvantage provided Seminole fans an interactive agricultural experience; highlighting different products grown around the Sunshine State and fun farm facts through an interactive farm tour. The tour spotlighted top commodities grown in Florida and the farmers and ranchers who work tirelessly to give Floridians the Home Field AGvantage when it comes to buying fresh fruit, vegetables, milk and meat year-round.

The Ag Day celebrations continued during the game with on-field recognition of the Yoder Family with Crooked Creek Cattle Company, a multi-generational beef cattle ranch in Calhoun County.

A tribute video to farmers and ranchers also played on the Jumbotron pre-game and at half time. Fans were encouraged to participate in a social wall using the hashtag #MyAgExperience.

Florida Farm Bureau will continue the Home Field AGvantage celebrations at the University of Florida vs. Vanderbilt homecoming game on Saturday, Oct. 7. Gator® fans will also have the opportunity to learn about and celebrate Florida agriculture through interactive farm displays.

The Home Field Agvantage website provides fans additional opportunities to learn about agriculture and a chance to register for an ultimate game day tailgate package with tickets.
