Ag Secretary Vilsack Addresses NFU

Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack started his first full week of work Monday addressing the National Farmers Union’s virtual convention, the first of many appearances he will likely be making to agricultural organizations. As secretary under the Obama Administration for eight years, Vilsack made an effort to attend as many agriculture and biofuel related events as possible each year.

NFU officially convened the final portion of its 119th Anniversary Convention this week with more than 500 farmers, ranchers, and other participants from across the country registered. Secretary Vilsack addressed several important issues in his remarks, including “new, more, fairer and better markets,” carbon sequestration, biofuels, and COVID relief.
