Wheat Grower CEO Chandler Goule Calls the Nomination of Gregg Doud to Be Chief Ag Negotiator Welcome News

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 16:35:26 CDT

Wheat Grower CEO Chandler Goule Calls the Nomination of Gregg Doud to Be Chief Ag Negotiator Welcome News The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) supports President Donald Trump’s nomination of Gregory Doud to be the chief agricultural negotiator, with the rank of Ambassador, under the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR). Gregory Doud, of Kansas, is a former U.S. Wheat Associates staff member and the current President of the Commodity Markets Council.


“Trade is a top priority for U.S. wheat farmers and this nomination is welcome news to America’s wheat farmers,” stated NAWG CEO Chandler Goule. “With the Administration currently working on renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and our desire to see the Administration move aggressively to expand our markets abroad, we encourage the U.S. Senate to quickly confirm Doud as chief agricultural negotiator.”


From 2011-2013, Doud was a senior aide to the Senate Agriculture Committee for Senator Pat Roberts and Senator Thad Cochran. There he assisted in drafting what would become the 2014 Farm Bill. For eight years, Doud also served as Chief Economist for the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.


“The Administration has threatened to cut the Farm Bill’s Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) program, two key trade provisions for wheat growers,” stated NAWG CEO Chandler Goule. “We know that Doud’s experience as a farmer and drafting the 2014 Farm Bill will influence the discussion around these programs during the reauthorization of the 2018 Farm Bill.”
