WEST FARGO, N.D. - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack will be a special guest

at the 30th Annual Big Iron Farm Show. Vilsack has accepted an invitation

from the Red River Farm Network to participate in a question and answer

session at RRFN's Issues and Events Center Tuesday, September 14th. The

one-hour seminar begins at 11:30 a.m.

"It's a great honor having him come to our community and I applaud the Red

River Farm Network for going out and securing that for us. We really, really

appreciate that," said Bryan Schulz, Big Iron Farm Show Manager.

The forum will be moderated by RRFN farm broadcasters and there will be an

opportunity for the public to participate. According to RRFN farm

broadcaster Don Wick, there is no shortage of topics that could be

addressed.

"This is an exciting time in agriculture and we're pleased Secretary

Vilsack will be a part of our program. We'll focus on farm policy and

pocketbook issues," said Wick.

Vilsack was appointed by President Barack Obama as the 30th Secretary of the

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and sworn into office on January 21,

2009. Prior to his appointment, Vilsack served two terms as the Governor of

Iowa.

This is the second time in three years the agriculture secretary was part of

the Red River Farm Network Issues and Events Center schedule. In 2008,

Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer participated in the RRFN program at the Big

Iron Farm Show. The Red River Farm Network Issues and Events Center is

located between the Agriculture and Commercial Buildings on the Red River

Valley Fairgrounds, West Fargo, ND.
