Perdue Touches on Trade Policy, Ethanol in Iowa Remarks

Perdue said, “President Trump wanted me out here to let you all know that he understands American agriculture and that it is vital to the US economy. And he understands that Iowa is vital to US agriculture.” He added that, “As farmers, we need to be better communicators, but farmers are definitely part of our national security.” He stressed that no longer can farmers just be good producers; they have to tell the nation that the food is safe and their animals are treated well. “We’re going to make sound science, fact-based, data-driven decisions. Because that is what works in agriculture,” said Perdue. "At the same time, we should be unapologetic in agriculture.”
