BRYAN -- Today is National Ag Day, and obviously agriculture plays a key role in the every day life of people in the Brazos Valley. Our local farmers and ranchers fill that role each and every day. Mike Kristynik is a rancher in Brazos County.

Agriculture in the Brazos Valley also has a big economic impact. It creates a lot of jobs, and a lot of revenue from the cattle and crops that are grown in the Brazos Valley, Kristynik said.

That revenue directly impacts the consumer as well as the food and produce at your table. As Mike puts it, every day is an agriculture day. Our local ranchers work 24/7, 365 days a year.
