American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the Senate confirmation of Dr. Jewel Bronaugh as Deputy Secretary of Agriculture.

“AFBF congratulates Dr. Jewel Bronaugh on her confirmation as USDA Deputy Secretary. Not only is the confirmation historic, the bipartisan vote is an acknowledgement from both parties that she is focused on the needs of America’s farmers and ranchers.

Dr. Bronaugh’s wide range of experience as Virginia’s Agriculture Commissioner, as state director of USDA’s Farm Service Agency and her work addressing mental health issues in rural communities will make her a valuable addition to Secretary Tom Vilsack’s team as they tackle the challenges facing rural America. We look forward to working with USDA leadership to create new opportunities for farmers and ranchers as they feed the nation and the world.”
