USDA had a successful 2019

Its multifacted efforts help agriculture thrive

January 3, 2020

As 2019 drew to close, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue shared his assessment of how well the department he leads succeeded in meeting its goals this year. He has good reason to be proud of its record because the U.S. Department of Agriculture accomplished much this year.

"At USDA it is our honor to work on behalf of America's farmers, ranchers, foresters and producers," Perdue said. "This was a tough year with historic weather damage and unjustified trade retaliation. Our goal was to 'Do Right and Feed Everyone' by implementing much needed farm bill programs, enacting President Trump's Support Package for Farmers and continuing to feed and clothe this nation and the world."

Here are some of the USDA's success stories that were highlighted by the secretary:

Farm News applauds Perdue and his team at USDA for a year of major successes. The department's excellent track record in 2019 sets the stage for even more important achievements in 2020 and beyond. Given the importance of agriculture in the Hawkeye State, that's very welcome news.
