National Agriculture Week - March 16-22, 2003
Hello, I'm Governor Rick Perry. This is National Agriculture Week - an opportunity for all of us to salute our farmers and ranchers.
As a fifth generation Texan who grew up on a farm in West Texas and as the former Agriculture Commissioner of Texas, I never lose sight of what agriculture means to each of us.
It's the countless hours and tireless efforts put in each day by the men and women of agriculture that help feed, clothe and shelter our world.
For that, we are eternally grateful.
Thank you for your part in American agriculture.
