USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue Talks Trade, Ethanol and Soil Health on Iowa Cattle Farm On Friday, US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue visited Iowa and gave remarks to a crowd of Iowa farmers and others connected to agriculture- our colleagues from the Iowa Agribusiness Radio Network covered the event and what follows is their story and the audio of the Perdue speech. Click on the LISTEN BAR below to hear Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley introduce Secretary Perdue and then Perdue's comments.


"Hello from Nevada where top officials gathered to welcome the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to Iowa. Sonny Perdue toured the feedlot of Couser Cattle Company owned by Bill and Nancy Couser. Perdue was duly impressed by the facilities and quality of care given to the animals. He suggested the critics of animal agriculture should see how these steers and heifers were handled. “If the children of America were vaccinated and fed this well, this would be a better place,” said a smiling jean and boot clad Secretary as he addressed a crowd that numbered well over three hundred.


"The Secretary gave a fifteen-minute off the cuff speech outlining his commitment to trade, efficiency in the workplace and the Trump Administration’s goals for reducing regulation on farmers and businesses across America.


"There was no announcement regarding the status of Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey as deputy USDA Secretary under Perdue. Northey did not speak on stage and Perdue did not make any reference to him during the tour or presentation. Reporters who spoke to Northey were told that he was still waiting for the Trump Administration to make a phone call to him.?"
