KyCorn President Richard Strode, a farmer from Owensboro, issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Senate’s confirmation of Sonny Perdue as U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Secretary.
“It’s wonderful to see the President’s nominee for Agriculture Secretary achieve Senate confirmation. We believed Secretary Purdue was a great choice being from the southeastern part of the country. We are also happy to hear that he is already taking charge of the USDA and meeting with the President and farm groups. The next Farm Bill needs to be addressed as soon as possible.”
