WHEAT ORGANIZATIONS WELCOME TOM VILSACK BACK TO USDA
Source: joint organizations news release

Washington, D.C. - The National Association of Wheat Growers (NAWG) and U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) are pleased with the bipartisan U.S. Senate vote today approving the appointment of former Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to that important post again under the Biden-Harris Administration.

"We welcome Secretary Vilsack's return to USDA in a year that is projected to see record U.S. agricultural exports," said USW President Vince Peterson, who currently serves on the USDA Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee for Trade. "We look forward to working with him again to continue building on the successful export market development partnership between U.S. wheat farmers and USDA."

"NAWG applauds the Senate for its timely consideration and strong bipartisan support for confirming Secretary Vilsack to lead the USDA once again," said NAWG CEO Chandler Goule. "Like many farmers across the country, wheat growers are facing economic challenges, and we are pleased to see the Senate and President work to fill these leadership positions at the USDA with qualified candidates, so we can continue to work on policy that benefits rural America. Secretary Vilsack is uniquely qualified to head up the USDA, having served there previously, and has an exceptional understanding of agricultural and rural issues. We look forward to working with him and continuing to build our relationship with the USDA."
