“It is my honor and privilege to serve America’s farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers as they work to feed and clothe the world. Getting out of Washington, D.C. and connecting with the people of American agriculture is one of my favorite parts of the job. All across our great nation is where American ingenuity, strong character, and the wisdom to build strong families and communities shines. President Trump has such an affection for America’s farmers and ranchers because of their values and ingenuity,” said Secretary Perdue. “On every visit to every community, I discover new ideas and methods, listen to issues people are facing, and I take them back with me to make changes to better serve our customers.”
Throughout his travels, Secretary Perdue has met with a number of folks who have had specific problems when it comes to working with the federal government. The Secretary has taken those concerns back to Washington, D.C. and has worked to deliver concrete solutions to the problems facing farmers, ranchers, foresters, and producers.
