 Farm Bureau Praises Creation of New USDA Trade Undersecretary

AFBF President Zippy Duvall today lauded the recent establishment of an undersecretary for trade and foreign agricultural affairs at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.  

“Secretary Perdue’s action to create an undersecretary for trade and foreign agricultural affairs is good news for farmers and ranchers, and assures that exports will receive daily attention at the USDA,” Duvall said. “We know that there are other, important changes coming to the department as part of a larger reorganization effort. We look forward to receiving and reviewing details of that plan, as well as the effect it will have on America’s farmers, ranchers and farm communities.”
