The Senate Ag Committee considered the nomination of Jewel Bronaugh for Deputy Ag Secretary on Thursday. “With all of the challenges U.S. farmers, ranchers and landowners face today, I’ve never met one that’s not eternally optimistic. Throughout the pandemic, I talked with one farmer after another who somehow found ways to realign their operation to meet the demand of an altered food supply chain. They only required help to provide a voice to assist them in getting resources for financial survival,” said Bronaugh. “If America’s farmers and ranchers can find a way to stay positive and committed to their work, I’m obligated to use my voice, if confirmed, to do what I can to help provide and assist building our rural economy back strong.” Bronaugh shares Ag Secretary Vilsack’s commitment to equity within the agency.
