Secretary Perdue visited Couser Cattle Company in Nevada, Iowa, where he was presented with a custom made corn products display and a Don’t Mess with the RFS button from the Iowa Renewable Fuels Association. He held a round table discussion with Iowa biofuels and agricultural leaders and answered questions during a town hall event, and also met with current Governor, soon to be Ambassador Terry Branstad, and incoming governor Kim Reynolds during the visit.
