Secretary Perdue Visits Iowa

It was a sunny day in Iowa Friday for the visit of new Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue at Couser Cattle Company.

The Secretary was welcomed by Bill, Nancy and Tim Couser, as well as Iowa Senators Joni Erst and Chuck Grassley, and Rep. Steve King. Looking comfortable in worn jeans, the new secretary bragged about the value of American agriculture and the great job USDA does to help farmers and ranchers do their jobs. “Our new motto is Do Right and Feed Everyone,” Perdue said. “We want to let farmers farm and let ranchers ranch.”

USDA is doing an amazing job providing content from Secretary Sonny’s many appearances, with some especially good photos. Check out their photo albums on Flickr.
