CULLMAN - Motorists may purchase an Ag Tag at the local probate office for an additional $50 when renewing registration. Recently redesigned, the tag features a patriotic farm scene and displays the drivers’ commitment to supporting Alabama students and farmers.

“These tags are really nice,” said Cullman County Revenue Commissioner Barry Willingham. “Agriculture remains the largest industry in our County and buying these tags will give our citizens the opportunity to show their pride and support for the industry.”

Funds raised through Ag Tag sales support education and promotion efforts including the annual Alabama Ag in the Classroom Summer Institute for teachers, Farm-City Week programs, college scholarships for students studying agriculture-related degrees, prizes for livestock show competitors and other youth agriculture programs.

“I’m proud to be an Alabama farmer and that agriculture has supported my family for years,” said Cullman County Farmers Federation President Steve Lake. “Buying an Ag Tag for your vehicle is a great way to promote agriculture and show support for farmers.”
