Last quote by Sonny Perdue

Dr. Clovis was one of the first people through the door at USDA in January and has become a trusted advisor and steady hand as we continue to work for the people of agriculture. He looks at every problem with a critical eye, relying on sound science and data, and will be the facilitator and integrator we need. Dr. Clovis has served this nation proudly since he was a very young man, and I am happy he is continuing to serve.feedback

I made it very clear that the Class 7 designation we felt was unfair, undercutting this (U.S.) industry that grew up south of the border. ... The quick win would be to do away with Class 7 milk, which we think is a very unfair, underhanded circumvention of WTO (World Trade Organization).feedback

May 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

If kids aren't eating the food, and it's ending up in the trash, they aren't getting any nutrition – thus undermining the intent of the program. A perfect example is in the south, where the schools want to serve grits. But the whole grain variety has little black flakes in it, and the kids won't eat it. The school is compliant with the whole grain requirements, but no one is eating the grits. That doesn't make any sense. I've got 14 grandchildren, and there is no way that I would propose something if I didn't think it was good, healthful, and the right thing to do.feedback
