  • Producers and rural communities in the West face unique challenges, but also unique opportunities. I was happy to spend time with @westgov talking about @USDA’s investments in climate-smart agriculture, clean energy, and economic development that can help their states thrive.
  • I spoke to the Western Governors Association today about President Biden’s Investing in America Agenda, which has poured unprecedented resources into rural communities in their states and around the nation.

USDA Announces Progress to Further Competition in Agriculture, Level Playing Field for Farmers

Twitter

@SecVilsack

  • No one says it better than @POTUS: Capitalism without competition isn’t capitalism. It’s exploitation. For too long, producers have been exploited by deceptive practices. Today we’re taking steps to remedy that.
  • Competition ensures that American farmers, ranchers, and those who grow our nation’s food have the freedom to choose among different suppliers, employers, and retailers to buy and sell high-quality products that support rural economies.
  • I’m announcing the final Poultry Transparency Rule, which will protect poultry growers from deceptive practices and increase transparency in the poultry market. https://usda.gov/media/press-releases/2023/11/08/usda-announces-progress-further-competition-agriculture-level
  • Today’s actions are key to @POTUS’ Investing in America and Bidenomics agenda. They further competition in the industry, allowing more producers to get a fair price for their products and create economic opportunity for their operations.
