WASHINGTON — Former North Dakota Gov. Ed Schafer, the 29th U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, will be honored at the unveiling of his official portrait on April 27, at an afternoon ceremony and invitation-only reception in the Whitten Building Patio, at the headquarters of the U.S. Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C.
FARGO, N.D. — Former Agriculture secretaries Ed Schafer from North Dakota and Bob Bergland from Minnesota have been invited to Washington, D.C., to be among dignitaries gathered for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s annual Ag Outlook Forum.
FARGO — House Agriculture Committee Chairman Frank Lucas, R-Okla., faces a tough task of justifying and delivering an adequate farm program — anything comparable to the expiring, popular 2008 farm bill — in the midst of a tightening budget.
He discussed the next steps in the farm bill discussion in front of a full Fargo conference room on Thursday as business and agriculture leaders urged him to continue programs and prevent overreach from federal regulators.
