Wheat Industry and Other Group Urge the Trump Administration to Appoint USDA Leadership Team

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 15:20:38 CDT

Wheat Industry and Other Group Urge the Trump Administration to Appoint USDA Leadership Team Today, the National Association of Wheat Growers joined more than a dozen other prominent agriculture organizations calling on President Donald Trump to quickly to fill vacancies within the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).



NAWG CEO Chandler Goule made the following statement:



“Farmers have had to deal with a rapidly declining market, and months and years of sustained low prices means rural America is struggling. We need, now more than ever, strong leadership at the USDA to continue effectively implementing key Farm Bill programs that will help bring producers out of these tough economic times.



“We commend President Trump for nominating Sonny Perdue to Secretary of USDA but now it is time to get his top policy advisors in place. From promoting agriculture production to keeping our food supply safe, the USDA’s role and responsibilities are vast and complex and require more than one Senate-confirmed official at the Department.



“NAWG encourages the Administration to quickly fill leadership vacancies within the USDA especially as we head into the reauthorization of the 2018 Farm Bill.”
