From the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention- US Secretary of Ag Sonny Perdue Addresses Closing General Session

Fri, 01 Feb 2019 10:47:38 CST

At the 2019 Cattle Industry Convention in New Orleans, cattle producers warmly welcomed the current US Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue as he spoke to their closing general session on Friday morning.

The Secretary claimed that he was ditching his speech, but after making a few impromtu remarks- he appeared to return to a prepared speech.

At the top of his remarks, he told producers that everytime he talks with his boss, President Donald Trump, that the President wants to know how farmers are doing. Perdue says he says there are three things that farmers and ranchers need help on:

1. Trade

2. Trade

3. Trade

And he adds that Trade is in contention for being fourth as well.

He mentioned the negotiations with China as well as with Japan as being important to the farm and ranch community.

After trade- he also talked about what the cattle industry is calling fake meat- only he called it cell culture meat. He promises that USDA will be active in their oversight of what this product can say on the labels of their packaging as well as in meeting the same strict food safety standards that beef, pork and poultry now live under.

The Secretary continued on- talking about the Farm Bill, regulations and more.
