DTN/Progressive Farmer

Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack was confirmed just a days ago, and as he and his team settle in at Department headquarters in DC, ag spaces are already buzzing with what might be on the docket. Today, DTN’s Chris Clayton gives us the full download on a broad range of topics, from ethanol and regulation to COVID relief and the future of meatpacking. We’ll discuss what a more determined focus on climate change and righting the wrongs of USDA’s long history of racial discrimination might look like, plus more on how all of these priorities might effect markets.
