Rural Prosperity
An Executive Order by President Trump has established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity. New Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue will serve as the task force’s chairman. And in his first day on the job, Rod Bain reports Perdue took part in a Presidential farmer’s roundtable.

Fourteen farmers from across the country met with President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue for that roundtable discussion. Two of those 14 are from the Southeast, as one was American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall from Georgia. Florida was represented by Lynetta Griner, owner/operator of Usher Land and Timber, and president of the Florida Forestry Association.
