Agri-Tag Update

As of August 1, 2016 the fee associated with agri-tags increased to $35. With 2017 being KFAC's 35th anniversary, it seemed like the ideal time to increase the agri-tag fee. We greatly appreciate your support for Kansas Agriculture LIteracy through your purchase of our speciality tag.

Throughout the year of 2016, our goal has been to double the number of agri-tags on Kansas roads and highways and we still need your help! If you already have an agri-tag - thank you for your support! If you or someone you know are interested in getting one, please visit your county treasurer's office. Read more>
