Kansas Agriculture in the Spotlight


Location: Unknown

Last week, Franki and I had the pleasure to host U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Vilsack in ManhattanTom Vilsack in Manhattan where we discussed a number of issues important to Kansas farmers and ranchers. We had a great day at Kansas State University, along with Rep. Lynn Jenkins and Kansas State Pres. Kirk Schulz.

The day started with a breakfast with future ag leaders, followed by Secretary Vilsack's Landon Lecture, a tour of the Biosecurity Research Institute at Kansas State, and finally a celebration of the 150th Anniversary of USDA. The agriculture industry has a lot to be proud of in Kansas, and it was no surprise that Secretary Vilsack was impressed with what he saw. I applaud his efforts to encourage and cultivate the next generation of leaders in agriculture. We have no shortage of such leadership in our state.
