Leduc County celebrating Canada's Agriculture Day today

Canada's Agriculture Day is here, a day that means a whole lot to the County of Leduc.

There are 1,088 farms in the County that depend on agriculture with 1,590 farm operators.

In fact, Leduc County is the second largest county in the region based on farm receipts according to a census report done in 2016 and more than $3 billion of farm capital in the county is at market value.

In Canada, the industry is equally as important as 1 in 8 Canadian jobs are in agriculture and Canada is also the 5th largest exporter of agriculture worldwide.  (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
