The McDonough County Farm Bureau celebrated National Agriculture Week by honoring the first baby to be born during the third week of March at McDonough District Hospital as the 2017 Ag Baby.

Kinsley Ann, daughter of Josh and Kristi Morris claimed the honor this year. The lucky baby and her parents received a basket full of agriculture related products. Some of the gifts included farm related books and toys as well as baby wash and lotion that contain agriculture by products.

The Ag Baby promotion was developed to bring awareness to agriculture and its use in our everyday lives.

National Agriculture Month is celebrated yearly during March. Agriculture awareness events and activities are held across the United States in an effort to recognize and celebrate the contribution of agriculture to our everyday lives.
