Zach Ducheneaux ranches on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in north central South Dakota and currently serves on the U.S. Cattlemen’s Association board. Director of Policy Outreach Lia Biondo says Ducheneaux is passionate about beginning U.S. farmers and ranchers and knows agriculture like the back of his hand. “He’s lived the issues and understands what happens when disasters hit. Ducheneaux knows how hard these producers work to make a buck out there,” said Biondo. “We are so excited to see him in this leadership role at the USDA, because he’ll bring those lessons to this role.”
