As President-elect Donald Trump thins his list of major nominations to make before he takes office later this month, the agriculture industry is getting restless while waiting for his pick to lead the Department of Agriculture.
Two new candidates are expected to interview this week for the Ag Secretary position. A DTN report says Abel Maldonado, Jr., a former California Lieutenant Governor, is set to interview for the post with President-elect Donald Trump this week.
The search for Agriculture Secretary under President-elect Donald Trump continues and looks to be still far from closing in. DTN reports Trump will meet next week with Elsa Murano(mur-ron-oh), a former Texas A&M president and a USDA undersecretary for food safety under President George W. Bush.
