Schafer takes helm at USDA

By | March 17, 2008
Ed Schafer was sworn in Jan. 28 as the 29th Secretary of Agriculture, replacing Deputy Secretary Chuck Connor who had served as acting secretary since September when former secretary Mike Johanns resigned. Schafer was governor in his home state of North Dakota from 1992 to 2000. In remarks at the USDA Agricultural Outlook Forum on Feb. 21, Schafer said, "I think in the next 10 to 15 years, we're going to move a long way toward meeting the goals of this country in self-sufficiency in energy, and it's going to come from an effort in the agriculture community."
