The American Farm Bureau Federation welcomes the confirmation and swearing in of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue. AFBF public policy executive director Dale Moore says with the confirmation and swearing in of Perdue, agriculture now has a voice in the new administration.
Moore says one of the first things for Agriculture Secretary Perdue is meeting with President Donald Trump and a group of farmers at the White House, including AFBF President Zippy Duvall.
Perdue told USDA employees Tuesday that trade will be a top priority of the department. Moore says this echoes the priorities of AFBF.
That’s AFBF’s Dale Moore.
